Are there any git hosting services that allow custom domains?
Since I'll be getting off GitHub and don't want to self host, that's a killer feature I'd pay for.
@sirvertalot to have a single access point for accessing and sharing my code publicly. For example, I've got a dotfiles repo that I started on GitHub and then moved to sourcehut. I need to remember their specific paths to the repo to clone it on a new machine.
If I had git.tychi.me/backpack, I can guarantee for the rest of my life that's where my repo can be cloned from.
@tychi hmm, I like the idea but I'm not sure it's trivially possible, because it's not just the hostname, it's also the path after the colon that changes. For instance:
So your idea would be to be able to `git clone git.tychi.me/backpack`? In that case you would probably need a permanently running proxy daemon which speaks the `git://` protocol, I guess.
@tychi ok, now I'm reading up on it (https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-on-the-Server-The-Protocols) and it turns out that the git protocol is only for public, read-only access. So you probably want ssh and I don't see a way to rewrite those URIs. Am I missing something?
@tychi How about setting up a reverse proxy that forwards all requests to something like Codeberg? I think for public repositories it can work. Never tried it myself though
