    Really lightweight, 100MB(Gitea) download vs 1.5GB(GitLab) makes things clear as day. It's also written in Go while GitLab is mostly on Ruby, I think no need to explain performance differences. Of course it comes with a price: Gitea is not as feature rich as GitLab, but sometimes you do not need them anyway. Good alternative when you just need to manage your code in sane way.

    Jenkins is a build server, Gitlab is version control. Two different things.
