ConfigCat SDK for Python
ConfigCat SDK for Python provides easy integration between ConfigCat service and applications using Python.
ConfigCat is a feature flag, feature toggle, and configuration management service. That lets you launch new features and change your software configuration remotely without actually (re)deploying code. ConfigCat even helps you do controlled roll-outs like canary releases and blue-green deployments. https://configcat.com
1. Install the package with
pip install configcat-client
configcatclient to your application
Log in to ConfigCat Management Console and go to your Project to get your API Key:3.
4. Create a ConfigCat client instance:
configcat_client = configcatclient.create_client('#YOUR-API-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

Using this feature, you will be able to get different setting values for different users in your application by passing a
User Object to the

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.
