ConfigCat SDK for Python
ConfigCat SDK for Python provides easy integration for your application to ConfigCat.
ConfigCat is a feature flag and configuration management service that lets you separate releases from deployments. You can turn your features ON/OFF using ConfigCat Dashboard even after they are deployed. ConfigCat lets you target specific groups of users based on region, email or any other custom user attribute.
1. Install the package with
pip install configcat-client
configcatclient to your application
ConfigCat Dashboard to get your SDK Key:3. Go to the
4. Create a ConfigCat client instance:
configcat_client = configcatclient.create_client('#YOUR-SDK-KEY#')
We strongly recommend using the ConfigCat Client as a Singleton object in your application.
5. Get your setting value
isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled = configcat_client.get_value('isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled', False) if isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled: do_the_new_thing() else: do_the_old_thing()
6. Stop ConfigCat client on application exit

from configcatclient.user import User user = User('#USER-IDENTIFIER#') isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled = configcat_client.get_value('isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled', False, user) if isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled: do_the_new_thing() else: do_the_old_thing()
The ConfigCat SDK supports 3 different polling mechanisms to acquire the setting values from ConfigCat. After latest setting values are downloaded, they are stored in the internal cache then all requests are served from there. Read more about Polling Modes and how to use them at ConfigCat Docs.
