RolloutUI: A slick way to rollout features in your web app.

What does it do?

RolloutUI provides a zero-configuration user interface for James Golick's rollout. RolloutUI auto-detects features defined in rollout in your application. It allows you to release features to groups, users or a percentage of your userbase through a nice interface rather than digging around in the console or modifying redis directly.

It looks something like this:

RolloutUI

Installing RolloutUI

First, get rollout set up and running on your app and define at least one feature.

Then you're ready to use RolloutUI.

Add it to your gemfile:

gem "rollout_ui"

Wrap your rollout instance:

$rollout = Rollout.new($redis)
RolloutUi.wrap($rollout)

Rails 3.1

In your application.rb file, require the rollout engine:

require "rollout_ui/engine"

Mount the Rails engine in your routes.rb file:

mount RolloutUi::Engine => "/rollout"

Other

Run the sinatra app. You can either run it as it's own app, or run it in tandom with other rack apps. Example: using Rack's URLMap in your config.ru:

run Rack::URLMap.new \
  "/" => Your::App.new,
  "/rollout" => RolloutUi::Server.new

Protecting the sinatra app with HTTP basic auth is probably a good idea. Put this somewhere before the URLMap in your config.ru:

RolloutUi::Server.use Rack::Auth::Basic do |username, password|
  username == '<some username>' && password == '<some password>'
end
