The GitLab Enterprise Edition has supported “GitLab Pages” (which serve static pages similar to GitHub pages).  Recently GitLab has announced that they’re adding “GitLab Pages” to their open source Community Edition.  Announcement here:

The good news is that it supports HTTPS, so this is yet another way that people can implement criterion https_sites.


There is a weird limitation: GitLab allows usernames and groupnames to have a dot, but if they do, they don’t work due to DNS interactions.  Obvious solution: New username/groupname.  Warning here:


GitLab’s “GitLab pages” mechanism directly support TLS with custom domains for projects – something that GitHub does not currently support.  Details here:

It’s not clear if GitLab will enable this mechanism in their Community edition – but it’d be great if they did.  If they don’t, I’m guessing that a CDN proxy would work in this case as well.
