    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.
