GitLab is an open source code repository and collaborative software development platform for large DevOps and DevSecOps projects. GitLab offers a location for online code storage and capabilities for issue tracking and CI/CD. The repository enables hosting different development chains and versions, and allows users to inspect previous code and roll back to it in the event of unforeseen problems.
