Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'flipper-ui'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install flipper-ui

Usage

Rails

Given that you've already initialized Flipper as per the flipper readme, you can mount Flipper::UI to a route of your choice:

# config/routes.rb
YourRailsApp::Application.routes.draw do
  mount Flipper::UI.app(flipper) => '/flipper'
end

If you'd like to lazy load flipper, you can pass a block instead:

# config/routes.rb
YourRailsApp::Application.routes.draw do
  flipper_block = lambda {
    # some flipper initialization here, for example:
    # YourRailsApp.flipper
  }
  mount Flipper::UI.app(flipper_block) => '/flipper'
end

Security

You almost certainly want to limit access when using Flipper::UI in production. Using routes constraints is one way to achieve this:

# config/routes.rb

flipper_constraint = lambda { |request| request.remote_ip == '127.0.0.1' }
constraints flipper_constraint do
  mount Flipper::UI.app(flipper) => '/flipper'
end

Another example of a route constrain using the current_user when using Devise or another warden based authentication system:

# initializers/admin_access.rb

class CanAccessFlipperUI
  def self.matches?(request)
    current_user = request.env['warden'].user
    current_user.present? && current_user.respond_to?(:admin?) && current_user.admin?
  end
end

# config/routes.rb

constraints CanAccessFlipperUI do
  mount Flipper::UI.app(flipper) => '/flipper'
end

Standalone

Minimal example for Rack:

# config.ru

require 'flipper-ui'
require 'flipper/adapters/memory'

adapter = Flipper::Adapters::Memory.new
flipper = Flipper.new(adapter)

run Flipper::UI.app(flipper) { |builder|
  builder.use Rack::Session::Cookie, secret: "something long and random"
}

The key is that you need to have sessions setup. Rails does this for you, so this step isn't necessary, but for standalone rack, you'll need it. Without sessions setup, you will receive a Runtime error like:

RuntimeError: you need to set up a session middleware *before* Rack::Protection::RemoteToken.
