Overall Satisfaction with LaunchDarkly
LaunchDarkly is used by our software development team for several of our customer-facing products. We primarily use it to manage the features that are released to these applications. We deploy new code to production on a daily basis. As our teams develop large feature sets we hide those feature sets behind LaunchDarkly feature flags until the entire feature set is complete. Once we have the feature set complete, the documentation created, and our customer service team trained, we remove the feature flag and make the new feature set available to our customers.
- LaunchDarkly does a great job of controlling the release of new features.
- LaunchDarkly makes it easy to handle feature flags across multiple environments.
- LaunchDarkly makes it easy to turn on feature flags for specific users.
- It can be hard to manage a large number of feature flags.
- I would like to see some more reports and analytics around feature flags.
- Instead of having the development team build out their own implementation of feature flags within our products, we were able to set up and implement LaunchDarkly in less than a day.
It is very easy to set up and use. Options are straightforward and make sense. I like how the different projects all have a different color, which makes it easy to identify which project you are in. Finding a particular flag can be hard if you don't know exactly the terms that were used to create it, which means defining good naming standards is important.
We have not had any issues with our application performance related to LaunchDarkly. Having default options built-in in case the service is unavailable is also nice and ensures we have full control over the experience in all situations.
