Clarify that Gitea requires JavaScript (#23677)
Close #20553

There were already a lot of functions powered by JavaScript in Gitea.

Without JavaScript, the Gitea Web UI almost doesn't work (only some
static links work ....)

Gitea - Git with a cup of tea

Contribute with Gitpod

View this document in Chinese


The goal of this project is to make the easiest, fastest, and most painless way of setting up a self-hosted Git service.

As Gitea is written in Go, it works across all the platforms and architectures that are supported by Go, including Linux, macOS, and Windows on x86, amd64, ARM and PowerPC architectures. You can try it out using the online demo. This project has been forked from Gogs since November of 2016, but a lot has changed.


From the root of the source tree, run:

TAGS="bindata" make build

or if SQLite support is required:

TAGS="bindata sqlite sqlite_unlock_notify" make build

The build target is split into two sub-targets:

  • make backend which requires Go Stable, required version is defined in go.mod.
  • make frontend which requires Node.js LTS or greater and Internet connectivity to download npm dependencies.

When building from the official source tarballs which include pre-built frontend files, the frontend target will not be triggered, making it possible to build without Node.js and Internet connectivity.

Parallelism (make -j <num>) is not supported.

More info:


./gitea web

NOTE: If you're interested in using our APIs, we have experimental support with documentation.


Expected workflow is: Fork -> Patch -> Push -> Pull Request


  2. If you have found a vulnerability in the project, please write privately to Thanks!


Translations are done through Crowdin. If you want to translate to a new language ask one of the managers in the Crowdin project to add a new language there.

You can also just create an issue for adding a language or ask on discord on the #translation channel. If you need context or find some translation issues, you can leave a comment on the string or ask on Discord. For general translation questions there is a section in the docs. Currently a bit empty but we hope to fill it as questions pop up.


Further information

For more information and instructions about how to install Gitea, please look at our documentation. If you have questions that are not covered by the documentation, you can get in contact with us on our Discord server or create a post in the discourse forum.

We maintain a list of Gitea-related projects at gitea/awesome-gitea.

The Hugo-based documentation theme is hosted at gitea/theme.

The official Gitea CLI is developed at gitea/tea.

Why is this not hosted on a Gitea instance?

We're working on it.
