Feature toggle


Feature toggles, also known as feature flags, are a technique in software development enabling developers to activate or deactivate certain features without changing the code. This method facilitates various development processes, such as A/B testing, canary releases, and gradual rollouts.



  1. Toggle Implementation: Embed toggles in the codebase to control feature availability.
  2. Toggle Management: Use a management system to handle the state of each feature toggle.
  3. Evaluation and Adjustment: Continuously assess the impact of toggled features and make adjustments as needed.
