Bitbucket offers unlimited private repositories for free, as long as the number of members in a team is not larger than 5. In other words, it does not charge for each number of private repository, instead it charges by the number of team members.
There is currently no way to search for source code inside BitBucket repositories through their website. The only way to search is by downloading the repository and searching through it locally or using external applications (both third and first party).
With Phabricator you get so many features it would be to long to list them all but some of the key features that allow this app to be an all-in-one solution are Git Management, Code Review, Build Automation and Agile Development.
If you use launchpad, it gives you a build system (on their platform) as well as easier deployment - user merely adds your PPA to their sources.list file. Deployment (on Ubuntu, at least - other debians as well) doesn't get simpler than this.
Launchpad makes it easy to translate free open source projects into virtually any language in the world. Users are allowed to start working on translating any project they want just by having a Launchpad account and a web browser. Most of the time they don't have to even join a team to start w...
Other project hosts such as GitHub, BitBucket or GitLab have easy, simplistic UIs that help new and experienced developers alike to browse code right through the browser. LaunchPad on the other hand is very weak at this. Most of the projects have poor (if any) documentation and no way to determine...
Every project hosted on SourceForge can have discussion boards, and issue tracker, a tab for screenshots and something most code hosts don't have: a Shell access. Developers can also websites for their projects for free on SourceForge, as well as a Wiki for documentation.
SourceForge makes it easy for users to download software hosted on it. It detects the user's platform and provides them with an appropriate version. They also have an extensive mirror network all over the world, which helps speed up downloads.
Compared to other hosts, Sourceforge's UI feels messy and cluttered. Ads take up large portions of screen real estate, and feature creep has resulted in buttons and links everywhere that can sometimes make it difficult to find what you're looking for.
