Overall Satisfaction with LaunchDarkly

We are using it in my department as a part of deploying and releasing chat application features. We are still in early phases of adoption, but it is currently helping us with controlling access to beta testing features.
  • Easy to use dashboard UI.
  • Supports a wide array of SDKs.
  • Well articulated documentation.
  • Improve documentation around serverless setups.
  • Massive time saved in terms of coordinating beta testing of new features.
  • Ability to deploy new features a lot more rapidly than before.
We didn't end up trying any other alternatives as LaunchDarkly has a very good reputation for being one of the best feature flag services to use and was what my company went with right from the get go.

Do you think LaunchDarkly delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy LaunchDarkly again?


From my experience it is well suited for web applications, and serverless services and API's. I haven't encountered a scenario where it is less appropriate.

Using LaunchDarkly

- It was easy to setup, create flags, and resolve them.
- It was hard to set up flag resolving to be performant in a lambda environment, having to force close the client on every request in order for requests to not hang and timeout. To get it to work properly we had to implement a dynamo db feature store and a separate flag relay service utilizing LaunchDarkly webhooks.

LaunchDarkly Reliability

- Once configured properly in our environment, the flag resolving is almost instant (utilizing an in memory store backed by dynamo db).
- Utilizing in a non-lambda environment using default settings on an express application is also very fast.
