Covergates is to make the easiest way to setup a self-hosted coverage report service. It's an alternative to services, such as:

The reason why this project is because managing coverage reports for private repositories should not be hard! It is able to link with your self-hosted Git service. Use it to improve coding review and quality management flow for your internal projects. Want to try? Visit covergates.com before you starting.


To get started, please download prebuilt binary covergates-version-platform-architecture.zip and try:

unzip covergates-<version>-<platform>-<architecture>.zip

Visit http://localhost:8080 for your covergates service.

To upload report, run covergate cli:

export API_URL=http://localhost:8080/api/v1
covergates upload -report <report id> -type go coverage.out


covergates-server uses environment variables to change configurations. Below is the list of variables for basic configuration:

  • GATES_SERVER_ADDR Default http://localhost:8080
  • GATES_DB_DRIVER Default sqlite3. Other options are postgres and cloudrun
  • GATES_DB_HOST Required host for postgres and cloudrun
  • GATES_DB_PORT Required port for postgres and cloudrun
  • GATES_DB_USER Required user forpostgres and cloudrun
  • GATES_DB_NAME Required database name for postgres and cloudrun
  • GATES_DB_PASSWORD Required password for postgres and cloudrun
  • GATES_GITEA_SERVER Default https://try.gitea.io/, gitea server address
  • GATES_GITEA_CLIENT_ID Required for Gitea OAuth login
  • GATES_GITEA_CLIENT_SECRET Required for Gitea OAuth login
  • GATES_GITHUB_SERVER Default https://github.com
  • GATES_GITHUB_API_SERVER Default https://api.github.com
  • GATES_GITHUB_CLIENT_ID Required for GitHub OAuth login
  • GATES_GITHUB_CLIENT_SECRET Required for GitHub OAuth login

Covergates is at an early development stage. Other languages and SCM support is ongoing! If you would like to assist with development, please refer to Contributing Section.


The build is split into backend, cli and frontend. To build backend, run:

go build -o covergates-server ./cmd/server

To build CLI, run:

export SERVER_API_URL=http://localhost:8080/api/v1
go build -o covergates -ldflags="-X main.CoverGatesAPI=$SERVER_API_URL" ./cmd/cli

You may change SERVER_API_URL to your self-hosted covergates-server address.

If your are behind firewall or proxy, you may also download source package with vendor modules from covergates.version.src.zip . To build with vendor modules, run:

go build -o covergates-server -mod vendor ./cmd/server

To build frontend, it requires:

  1. Node.js v12
  2. togo

Read web/README.md for more details.


It would be highly appreciated if you could contribute to the project. There are many ways in which you can participate in the project:

  1. Contributing directly to the code base

The expected workflow is GitHub flow. Read CONTRIBUTING.md before getting start.

  1. Submit feature requests and bugs

Especially for the new language support. It would be great if you could provide coverage report examples and how to produce coverage for other languages.

  1. Testing, both unit testing and e2e testing are welcome.
