You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Git Large File Storage (LFS) Support

    Would be great to support Git Large File Storage: https://git-lfs.github.com

    Git LFS appears to be considerably easier to setup and use than Git Annex.

    GitHub just announced Git LFS (opensource) and will be adding to GitHub: https://github.com/blog/1986-announcing-git-large-file-storage-lfs

    • Hosting web pages from a repository

      Both GitHub and BitBucket allows their users to host simple HTML web pages by creating a repository (whether private or public) named as _username_`.github.io` and _username_`.bitbucket.org` respectively. Once created, the repository name becomes the URL of the user's personal web page.

      It would be nice to have this feature on GitLab.com too! Moreoever, as GitLab aims to do things both GitHub and BitBucket do but better, I think we can go one step further by making it possible to host also pages in Markdown (with the correspondent to `index.html` be named, say, `README.md` or `home.md`). Since GitLab already has built-in…

      • Add repository templates to gitlab

        The ability for the admin to create a number of named git repository templates would be very nice.
        It should be possible to add files to the template so any repo made from a template gets a copy of the template files.
        When you want to make a new project in gitlab there should be a pulldown menu where you could choose a template created inhouse.

        Many uses gitlab as an internal company git server, thus often specific setups are required for repositories.
        Templates would simplify this by ensuring the default files are present at clone.
        Maintenance of said files…

        • Relations between issues

          Please add option to specify relations between issues. For example like Redmine does.

          Idea is very simple: Each issue can have relation to any other issue. Relations are bidirectional. And the relation may be of one of few types.

          Types of relations:
          - blocks / is blocked by
          - follows / precedes
          - related to
          - duplicate of
          - part of (subtask) / composed of

          See http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/RedmineIssues.

          I know it is possible to link another issue in comment, but explicit relations will allow more advanced issue processing.

          To make great use of these relations, a start date, expected duration…

          • Create a leaner package for power users

            The current Omnibus package is fantastic for getting users up and running. Some users, however, feel that the Omnibus package is too bloated. For example, if the user wants to use their own Postgres or Nginx/Apache they would rather not have those dependencies brought in with the package.

            Consider creating a 'bare' GitLab Omnibus package which only includes Ruby/Gems plus GitLab source. Let users include their own database and web server.

              I think it would be great if GitLab CI had plugin integration (similar to Jenkins), such as Checkstyle, Code coverage and FindBugs.

              • notification for single file changes

                It would be great to have the option of setting a notification rule for single files, that sends a notification if someone elses commit includes this file.

                    • Ask to choose licence during the creation of a repository and use SPDX standard

                      Public code with no licence is a bad idea. So it would be nice to be asked to choose a licence when creating a code repository. And to ease interoperability and avoid ambiguity, using SDPX names and IDs for licences would be great.
                      Thanks !

                      • Filtering issues with multiple labels

                        I updated recently from version 7.5.x to 7.8.0, and I realized that filtering on multiple labels in issues is gone.

                        Since the labels moved from the sidebar to a dropdown menu, it is no longer possible to select multiple labels in conjunction (i.e. with AND semantics).

                        This in my opinion is a dramatic downgrade, as we use group of labels to mark issues with different meaning, e.g.

                        type:bug, type:feature, type:idea, type:requirement
                        prio:urgent
                        comp:c1, comp:c2, ...

                        So we wanted to find urgent bugs about component c2, we could filter with all the corresponding labels "type:bug, prio:urgent, comp:c2".

                        Actually I wonder I…

                        • Add Optional view for Merge Request with side panel for File Tree

                          The current Merge Request section shows a continuous list of file changes (up to some limit for performance reasons). With an expandable flat list of changed files on top.

                          That might be convenient for seeing a handful small changes without having to click on each file.

                          But when there are MANY changes to MANY files, Gitlab ends up displaying just the top "some" files without any navigation aid.

                          It would be great if one could choose a different view instead (similar to Stash) where you have a side panel with the tree of changed files, and when you click on…

                              I would love to have F# syntax highlighting as most of our projects on GitLab are written in F#.

                                  We're working quite a lot with Python, and we also use IPython/Jupyter notebooks to present/share/distribute tutorials, presentations, teaching material etc (university context). Rendering these notebooks is a very cool feature :-), and [nbviewer](http://nbviewer.ipython.org/) is an example of such a static web renderer ([source](https://github.com/jupyter/nbviewer)). You can feed it a URL or Github repo/gist to render it for you. As of today, [Github](https://github.com/blog/1995-github-jupyter-notebooks-3) (see what they say at [HackerNews](https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9507069) about that) also renders Jupiter notebooks natively.

                                  The static rendering of IPython/Jupyter notebooks has been mentioned a while ago on the [mailing list](http://mail.scipy.org/pipermail/ipython-dev/2013-October/012452.html),…

                                  • Graph should be shown by user and by email, not by name!

                                    Right now a user can own several emails. But when there are commits with the same email but with different names graphs are shown as if commits were made by different people.

                                    This happened in our Gitlab installation at work, when we imported pre-existing repositories that had different commit names for the same email, and now different graphs appear for each Name instead of for each User (email).

                                    • Sort search results by stars

                                      When a repo is popular, many people fork it. When someone then searches for the repo name, the real / canonical repo may not even show up in the first page of results.

                                      I think it would be good to either have the real repo show up first because it's the real repo, or at least have the same behavior as autocomplete, where we sort the repo with the most stars to the top.

                                        • Doxygen generated documentation page

                                          I use doxygen style commenting and would be very happy if GitLab could autogenerate doxygen documentation (using doxygen configuration file commited to root) which would then be viewed as Code Documentation tab (just as wiki). This could be made by daily trigger or with each commit (preferably) to master. That way we can keep documentation completely up to date directly from code to and avoid linking to doc directory to display.
