I evaluate Kirby for future projects.
With the arise of GDPR, I am really careful about third-party services.
My issue is that Kirby allows to version control everything and I love that.
But where do I host the repository with sensitive user information and eventually form submissions?
GitHub, GitLab and BitBucket store their stuff outside of Europe, as far as I know. GitLab could be self-hosted, but that needs to be maintained.
How do other European makers handle that?
I have used self-hosted GitLab before, but it’s very complex to set up and maintain (each update has caused varying amounts of pain).
So I have set up a Gitea instance for my personal use. It is very lightweight, comparatively simple to install and update and works very well, for example on a Uberspace.
Thanks for the heads-up on Gitea, @lukasbestle!
Totally forgot that option.
Found a GitLab host with European server locations, but I think GitLab could be an overkill for Kirby (and it‘s pricey).
if you want to find more self hosted options you can find more information on this link: Choosing a Self-Hosted Git Service - paritybit.ca. There are lighter solutions to Gitea, it depends on the features you need.
