From the table, it can be seen that five of the six projects are back-end management framework projects. This kind of a complete back-end management framework is more suitable for enterprise users. After companies use a better back-end development framework, and after rapid development, they are also willing to express gratitude for donations to open source projects, thus forming "benefit from open source-giving back to open source" Virtuous circle.

In 2020, more and more international open source organizations and open source organizations owned by major domestic manufacturers have settled in Gitee to communicate with local developers.
