Reconfigure gitlab settings

La configuración de gitlab se guarda en un archivo .yml, que se genera a través de :

emacs /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb
sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure

To locate configuration files in our system

find / -name gitlab.rb
find / -name gitlab.yml


Gitlab logs are separated in three files: application, sidekiq and production

tail -f /var/log/gitlab/gitlab-rails/production.log
tail -f /var/log/gitlab/gitlab-rails/application.log
tail -f /var/log/gitlab/gitlab-rails/sidekiq.log

Code highlighting

For highlighting source code, Gitlab uses Rouge module.

To know whether a language will be coloured or not, they have this awesome website where you can actually test colouring different code snippets.

Available grammars are in Github.
