Welcome to Codey, the European Code Collaboration Platform.

Codey provides you a secure, fast and reliable code collaboration platform, hosted in Europe, with 100% free software, based on the community driven software Forgejo.

You get your own dedicated Forgejo instance with access to all features, fully managed by VSHN for you. Whether you’re a small team or a large enterprise organization, Codey has you covered.

Features of Codey

Codey offers the following features, in addition to the already built-in features of Forgejo:

Dedicated Instance

Codey provides you with your own, fully managed, dedicated instance of Forgejo. This assures that you’re able to leverage all features of Forgejo. In addition, being on a dedicated instance brings much more safety, rather than relying on the multi-tenancy features of a single instance, where a misbehaving party could cause severe damage.

Fully Managed

We take care of the day-2 operations of your dedicated instance, so that you don’t have to worry about:

  • Proactive monitoring of the instance health, including intervention should something fail

  • Keeping Forgejo up-to-date

  • Regular scheduled backups of all data and making sure the restore actually works

  • Configuration based on best-practices

All the features of Forgejo

By having a dedicated instance, you get access to all the Features of Forgejo, including Git repository and package hosting, issue tracking, code collaboration with pull requests and code reviews, wikis, built-in GitHub Actions compatible CI/CD service and a lot more.

Security and Compliance

VSHN, the company which runs Codey, is ISO 27001 certified and has an ISAE 3402 Report Type 2 available. Furthermore, Codey runs at highly secure and certified cloud service providers. An instance of Codey belongs solely to you where only you have access. Operations personel won’t access your instance without your consent.

Hosted in Europe
