Apptimize supports server-side experimentation and release management through several server-oriented SDKs including Python.

Our server-side SDKs support programmatic experimentation (Dynamic Variables and Code Blocks) as well as Feature Flags.

EU Cloud Site

Use the configAttributes flag to set your Apptimize region to EUCS if you are integrated in our EU Cloud site.

configAttributes = {'apptimize_region' : 'eucs'}
Apptimize.setup('<YOUR_APP_KEY>', configAttributes)
