Feature Ops, when compared to our competition, aims to keep feature flags/toggles as a service affordable, simple, and secure.

In keeping with that tradition, today we announce the Feature Ops JavaScript (browser and Node.js) SDK.

We already offer a simple and easy to use RESTful API, but we know that many of our users and developers are looking for tighter integration with Feature Ops.

With that in mind we are looking to provide the following features with each of our language SDKs, including the JavaScript SDK:

  • Provide (and evaluate) feature flags settings for the client and/or the server
  • Capture and store feature flag statistics within the Feature Ops application
  • Continue to serve feature flags if connectivity to Feature Ops goes down
  • Improve performance via feature flag caching

Our JavaScript SDK is an isomorphic/universal JavaScript library. This is a fancy way of saying that this library can easily be used in the browser or on the server (Node.js). It’ll also work nicely with your front-end build process if you’re using a library such as Webpack or Browserify.

Just like Feature Ops, you’ll find that our JavaScript SDK is just as simple and easy to use. Simply initialize an instance of the Feature Ops client and request feature flag evaluations at your leisure.
