Python client for Sixpack, an A/B testing framework under active development at SeatGeek

Project description

Python client library for SeatGeak’s Sixpack ab testing framework.


First install in your virtual environment:

$ pip install sixpack-client


Basic example:

from sixpack.sixpack import Session

session = Session()

# Participate in a test (creates the test if necessary)
session.participate("new-test", ["alternative-1", "alternative-2"])

# Convert

Each session has a client_id associated with it that must be preserved across requests. Here’s what the first request might look like:

session = Session()
resp = session.participate("new-test", ["alternative-1", "alternative-2"])
set_cookie_in_your_web_framework("sixpack-id", session.client_id)

You can then make decisions in your application based on resp[‘alternative’][‘name’]:

session = Session()
resp = session.participate("new-test", ["alt-1", "alt-2"])
if resp["alternative"]["name"] == "alt-1":
    set_variable_in_view("new-test-alternative", "alt-1")

For future requests, create the Session using the client_id stored in the cookie:

client_id = get_cookie_from_web_framework("sixpack-id")
session = Session(client_id=client_id)

Sessions can take an optional options dictionary that takes host and timeout as keys. This allows you to customize Sixpack’s location.:

options = {'host': ''}
session = Session(client_id="123", options=options)

If Sixpack is unreachable or other errors occur, sixpack-py will provide the control alternative.
