Gitea

Renovate uses modern Git upload filters to suppress large blob downloads. For Gitea you need to manually enable upload filters. Read the official Gitea docs for more information.

Authentication

First, create a Personal Access Token for the bot account. Let Renovate use your PAT by doing one of the following:

  • Set your PAT as a token in your config.js file
  • Set your PAT as an environment variable RENOVATE_TOKEN
  • Set your PAT when you run Renovate in the CLI with --token=

Remember to set platform=gitea somewhere in your Renovate config file. Either the account should have full name and email address set to allow Renovate to estabilish Git identity, or the gitAuthor config option should be set.

Unsupported platform features/concepts

  • Adding reviewers to PRs not supported: Gitea versions older than v1.14.0 do not have the required API.
  • Setting platformAutomerge to use platform-native automerge for PRs not supported: Gitea versions older than v1.17.0 do not have the required API.
