Code Studio

Code Studio is Acquia’s version of GitLab, optimized for Drupal development on the Acquia platform. Acquia hosts and manages Code Studio (GitLab) within Cloud Platform.

Code Studio comes with pre-built automation to support low-configuration, continuous integration, and continuous delivery of Drupal 8 or 9 projects to applications hosted on Cloud Platform. You can extend and customize the default pipeline configuration based on your needs.

Use the information in these documentation pages to begin building, testing, and deploying to Cloud Platform with Acquia Code Studio.
