GForge: The Best

For SourceForge

Make a seamless transition to a better product with better support
without breaking the budget.

GForge and SourceForge share a common past and, in fact, if you give GForge a look you’ll notice a number of similarities like version control with SVN and Git, Trackers, Docs and Wiki. Yet despite these similarities, GForge meets your collaboration needs in a much better way.

Hands-down, GForge is more elegant, comprehensive and scalable than SourceForge

All-in-One Collaboration

A long time ago, SourceForge made a decision to focus on project publishing and advertising instead of focusing on collaboration. The result? Shallow or missing features and clunky integrations.

GForge, on the other hand, continued to focous on collaboration. GForge features share deep integration to meet the needs of your team and projects. We provide a robust, well documented API allowing you to integrate GForge with other parts of your business.

GForge pricing is on par with that of SourceForge, however, we should point out we target different organizations. GForge is a full collaboration suite for managing a large project portfoilio that includes thousands of users and projects. GForge offers SaaS, on-premises and managed hosting options and we support an Enterprise option allowing customers to deploy multiple instances of GForge within their organization.
