In August, Twitter acquired the small A/B testing service and development framework Clutch.io and announced that it would shut the service down on November 1st. Clutch, which Twitter describes as “an easy-to-integrate library for native iOS applications designed to help you develop faster, deploy instantly and run A/B tests,” will live on, however. The company today announced that it is open-sourcing the code on GitHub.
The code is available under the relatively permissiveApache License 2.0. Clutch.io, it is worth noting, consists of two projects: the native A/B testing service for iOS and Android, as well as a toolkit for developing hybrid native/HTML apps for iOS. The testing service allows developers to run A/B experiments on their native iOS and Android apps and Clutch.io offers SDKs for both operating systems that should make integrating this service relatively easy.
