MDT is a OTA platform from Rémi Groult written in Dart and utilizing MongoDB for easy distribution of both iOS and Android applications.

 

MDT provides a restful server, a clean responsive interface for clints/admin, uploading of builds through the interface or a CI server, and a number of other features for managing, and downloading app builds.

Compared to alternatives such as Fabrics, and TestFlight, there are other advantages.

As the readme states:

Unlike other solutions (Fabrics, TestFlight,…), you have no need to add all your users emails or manage groups to distribute your apps. Users can register themself (with white domains email configuration if needed) and access all your distributes apps. This is very usefull for example on IOS with ‘InHouse’ certificates in company where anybody can test beta versions of applications.
You can delete artifacts, to avoid out of date versions (certificats expiration, bad versions, etc..)<
MDT have a special “latest” version usefull if you have continous testers: no need to make a new version after each fonctionality implemented.
All your artifacts are stored in your storage area

 

Here are a few images from the readme demonstrating the interface:
