Feature Toggle Library

Details
The Feature Toggle Library allows IT users to manage feature release and restrict access to the feature through user context. This component is the Library that needs to be installed on the environments where you want to use features toggles defined on the Feature Toggle Management console. It improves the way to deal with unfinished work and hidden features in production and helps to remove dependency friction as you scale to multiple teams. Inside this component there are some Template Projects that you can use to jumpstart your project.

Feature toggling is an application-based release pattern that provides the mechanism to modify system behavior by selectively enabling and disabling features without requiring a production code deployment. Feature toggles are usually implemented by wrapping application logic or UI elements with a conditional statement, where the feature is enabled or disabled based on a configuration setting stored somewhere.


How To Use

This component requires the installation of the Feature Toggle Management component on LifeTime.

Please read the documentation on how to install and how to use this tool.
