Power the next generation of software delivery.

Flags for modern development

LaunchDarkly's feature management platform empowers every team to deliver and control software with feature flags. Our flags are versatile, reliable, and powerful.

SDK-powered

LaunchDarkly’s SDKs handle every feature flag update automatically. We support every major programming language, so you can embed LaunchDarkly into your server, client, and mobile applications.

Stored locally

Upon initializing LaunchDarkly, all your feature flag rules get stored locally in-memory. Process millions of flag changes without suffering latency issues.

Real-time updates

When you turn feature flags on/off, our streaming architecture guarantees it happens instantly. LaunchDarkly processes flag updates in 200 milliseconds. No performance lag, no waiting, no stress. 

Consistent experience

Elite teams use feature flags to run canary tests, progressively deliver features, migrate to microservices, and more. In all cases, LaunchDarkly disperses every change to every server in real-time, ensuring a consistent experience.

Flag types

Do more with feature flags than you ever thought possible. 

Boolean

For basic true-false scenarios, quickly create predefined Boolean flags and insert them in your code.

Multivariates

Define two or more custom variations. These variations can be strings, numbers, JSON objects, or JSON arrays.

Temporary

Mark flags as temporary when you intend to remove them after releasing a feature. LaunchDarkly lets you find and scrub those flags with ease.  

Permanent

Mark flags as permanent when keeping them in your code long-term. Use them for operational things like disabling non-essential features during a spike in traffic.

Client-side

Enable flags on front-end applications with our client-side SDKs for desktop clients and mobile devices: Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and more.

It’s simple. We’re able to ship value to customers faster and get feedback sooner, which improves the overall experience.

Flag organization and maintenance

Effortlessly find, contextualize, and arrange all your feature flags across your entire organization. 

Organization

Creating feature flags is straightforward. Keeping track of them, however, is not. LaunchDarkly’s intuitive UI and framework for storing flags in projects and environments make flag management painless. And they enable cross-team collaboration to boot!

Code References

Reduce technical debt and maintain good code hygiene. Identify all the locations within your codebase where a particular feature flag is being used. Automatically update those references with every commit to GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab, or other Git code hosting tool.

Compare and copy

Compare feature flag configuration settings, including targets and variations, between flags set up in two different environments. This is incredibly useful when comparing and cloning rules from a staging environment into your production environment, eliminating costly manual errors.

Debugger

The Debugger shows you a real-time stream of events arriving in LaunchDarkly from your app. Quickly verify that your flags are set up correctly. And if you spot an issue, the Debugger will help you collect additional data and determine if further action is needed.
