Integration of GitLab and Netlify


GitLab is a cloud-based application that is used by software developers to host their projects. It helps with the management of source code. GitLab also provides a bug tracking system. The source code can be kept privately or publicly on GitLab’s servers. GitLab also offers features such as a wiki, access contrps, and built-in CI/CD.


Netlify is a web hosting service for static websites. It uses continuous integration to support other languages than HTML and JavaScript. Netlify’s continuous integration server supports any language that has a Dockerfile. It provides support for content delivery networks, including BitTorrent and AWS Cloudfront. The main competitor of Netlify is Github Pages, but Netlify’s services are much more advanced than Github’s.

Integration of GitLab and Netlify

GitLab can be configured to deploy its source code automatically to Netlify whenever the code is pushed to the repository on GitLab. This eliminates the need to manually push the code to the domain via FTP, or using an application such as Cyberduck. Pushing to Netlify takes only a few minutes, since the website is hosted on the same servers as where the source code is stored. This means that there is no need for additional servers, which reduces costs.

Benefits of Integration of GitLab and Netlify

The benefits of integrating GitLab and Netlify include faster deployment times, reduced costs, and better security. Faster deployment times are achieved because there is no need for additional servers. With fewer servers invpved in the process of deployment, deployments are faster. Deployments are also faster because the code does not have to be transferred from the server to the browser via FTP or Cyberduck, which take longer than pushing the code directly from one server to another. By deploying directly to Netlify, there is also no need for an administrator to log into the server and make changes manually. The cost benefit comes from reducing the number of servers needed, which reduces the expense of maintaining them as well as the cost of purchasing new servers or expanding existing servers. The security benefit comes from using a continuous integration server that is managed by Gitlab instead of a third party server. In addition, if any vulnerabilities are found on your site you will be notified immediately by the Gitlab community so that they can be fixed quickly before someone exploits them.

The process to integrate GitLab and Netlify may seem complicated and intimidating. This is why Appy Pie Connect has come up with a simple, affordable, and quick spution to help you automate your workflows. Click on the button below to begin.
