Http Git hosting & Software repositories on Git server

+2 votes

I'm trying to build Git hosting server for a group of people.

  1. I see there are Git hosting that give ability to users to create and manage their repositories. I want to give user ability to create and manage their repository only using http. But in the instruction of http protocol, user with write privileges must login in order to create the repositories.
    Is it can work with http protocol or it must be with ssh?

  2. I would like get recommendation about a software if exist. Is there any software, I can use, that give the ability to see weby and/or visually view status of repositories on the Git server, without cloning or pulling a snapshot from the git server to my local machine and without login to the git server?

1) Note that Git itself is not at all concerned with how repositories are managed and how access to them is provided and controlled (separation of concerns).

2) Unless you want to create a simple CGI solution by hand, try one of server-side Git front-ends providing turn-key solutions for Git hosting...
