Can I connect with platform other than GitHub?

We currently only support GitHub, but we love to hear your opinion. GitLab? Sourceforge? Let us know!

Hi, we're using GitLab and looking forward to integrating with IssueHunt. Is there any progress on GitLab support?

Hi , thanks for your asking! GitLab integration has not progressing yet, but we will consider about that.
Could you tell me the reason why you are using GitLab not GitHub?
GitLab has more features and more free features for us. Our company needed an issue board, which was not available in GitHub at that time. I tried an extension for github board but it was slow, so we moved to GitLab. Anyways now github has Projects tab, proving issue board for repository. In general, I consider GitLab to be more generous and true open-source than GitHub (their LFS data pack is so annoying). It helps me develop first without cost, and now my company got funded, we will upgrade GitLab plan to use more features. As you can see, many big open-source projects moved GitLab in 2018 too: GNOME, GIMP, ... Here is a reference list: New and medium projects still start with GitHub in the beginning, but for the long run I think GitLab will be more beneficial.

Also since Microsoft acquisition of Github this year, some people are moving to Gitlab.

Hi, I'm asking about this again. I really like IssueHunt so I wish I could use IssueHunt to fund our open-source projects at Your competitor BountySource is having a semi-working GitLab integration. There should be a very short time that people finally fix it up so GitLab users would go to BountySource to use including us. At worse case our team may personally address this issue for BountySource so we can use, because BountySource is already open-sourced.
