Gitlab is a cloud-based solution to manage your own private and public data repositories and software projects.
You can easily build, test, and deploy your own Gitlab private repositories and repositories that you own.
If you want to use Gitlab with a public repository, you can use a public Gitlab key to sign your repository using your GitHub username, or use a private GitHub key to authenticate your repository.
This article will show you how to set up a Gitlab Private Repository with a GitHub Key.
How to create a GitLab Private Repo Using the Gitlab API Create a GitLAB private repository using the GitLab API.
If your repository is already public, go ahead and create a new GitLab private repository with your GitHub name and email address.
The API will take care of the rest.
Go ahead and enter your GitHub key into the API, then click Create.
If all went well, you should see the Git Lab public repository page.
If not, click Create to create it.
If the repository does not appear, click the Verify button.
A dialog box will open asking you to verify your identity and verify the public key in the API.
Enter your GitHub credentials, then confirm the setup.
You should see your Gitlab public repository now.
Note: To create a public GitHub repository, your public key must be at least 128 bits long.
If it’s less than 128 bits, it won’t work.
The rest of the steps will work the same as before, except you’ll need to enter your email address to sign the repo.
For the most part, this process is the same for all repositories.
