Open Source at Zutubi

At Zutubi we’ve reaped massive benefits over the years from open source. We’ve contributed back bits and pieces in that time — feedback and patches — but always felt we could do more. You may have noticed recent posts here about some of our projects, but we thought they deserved a bit more attention. So we’ve recently launch an new open source section on our website. This is a home for a few small projects of our own that we’ve opened up to the community. We hope you find them useful!

So far we’ve listed three projects:

  1. android junit report: a custom test runner for Android projects that produces XML test reports in a format similar to the Ant JUnit task.
  2. zutubi android ant: a collection of Ant tasks that supplement the standard Android build tooling.
  3. zutubi diff: a Java library for reading, inspecting and applying patch files in unified diff and other formats.

Over time we hope to publish more of our work in this way. You can keep an eye out for new projects on our website and/or follow our organisation on GitHub (or indeed my own GitHub account for Android-specific projects).

And as always: feedback is welcome, so fork away!
