Manage your own Git repositories!

GitLab is a web application that enables version management for software projects by use of git.

Code management makes it possible to retrace when specific changes have been made to your content. This is especially intended for source code, LaTex documents and scripts. Consequently, you will have a better overview regarding your projects and data, which will increase your work's quality.
