PRIVATE and Free! Subversion or Git repository hosting site.

Admittedly, I am a fan of gitHub.

From time to time, however, I also keen to have my own private, and most importantly, free code hosting place on the web. I’ve played with below site a weeks or two and I found it really worked as they promised, PRIVATE and free subversion and/or Git repository.

They offer 1GB storage of free and private repository with unlimited user. Isn’t it cool? Don’t miss it if you are someone like me.

On first look, it’s a bit tricky and confusing to find the right menu to create free SVN/Git repositories. It’s actually lurked behind so many normal paid services that it’s really not easy to go get it and even worse you will end up giving up and subscribe to pay service. 🙂

To get free repositories, just follow below pictures then you will never miss it. Refer to the pictures and red box I put it in.

1. Create Space

2. Create a Private Project

3. Most tricky part. Click the “We also have some limited …. ” link. Nobody reckon it’s a drop-down, clickable control.

At first, me neither. Depending on your screen resolution, chances are the link will be showed at the most bottom of your screen

4. Yay ~ now you can see four free services they provided.  Just Click the “Select” button and the rest will be similar to normal scm config procedure offered by other free services such as GitHub

Thanks Assemblar!

BitBucket is another cool free, private git hosting site.

 

 

And good part of bitbucket is you can invite up to 4 other colleagues to your free, private repository.
