LaunchDarkly SDK for .NET


Quick setup

  1. Use NuGet to add the .NET SDK to your project:

     Install-Package LaunchDarkly.Client
  2. Import the LaunchDarkly package:

     using LaunchDarkly.Client;
  3. Create a new LDClient with your SDK key:

     LdClient ldClient = new LdClient("YOUR_SDK_KEY");

Your first feature flag

  1. Create a new feature flag on your dashboard.

  2. In your application code, use the feature's key to check whether the flag is on for each user:

     User user = User.WithKey(username);
     bool showFeature = ldClient.BoolVariation("your.feature.key", user, false);
     if (showFeature) {
       // application code to show the feature 
     else {
       // the code to run if the feature is off

Check out our documentation for in-depth instructions on configuring and using LaunchDarkly. You can also head straight to the complete reference guide for this SDK.


We run integration tests for all our SDKs using a centralized test harness. This approach gives us the ability to test for consistency across SDKs, as well as test networking behavior in a long-running application. These tests cover each method in the SDK, and verify that event sending, flag evaluation, stream reconnection, and other aspects of the SDK all behave correctly.

About LaunchDarkly

  • LaunchDarkly is a continuous delivery platform that provides feature flags as a service and allows developers to iterate quickly and safely. We allow you to easily flag your features and manage them from the LaunchDarkly dashboard. With LaunchDarkly, you can:
    • Roll out a new feature to a subset of your users (like a group of users who opt-in to a beta tester group), gathering feedback and bug reports from real-world use cases.
    • Gradually roll out a feature to an increasing percentage of users, and track the effect that the feature has on key metrics (for instance, how likely is a user to complete a purchase if they have feature A versus feature B?).
    • Turn off a feature that you realize is causing performance problems in production, without needing to re-deploy, or even restart the application with a changed configuration file.
    • Grant access to certain features based on user attributes, like payment plan (eg: users on the ‘gold’ plan get access to more features than users in the ‘silver’ plan). Disable parts of your application to facilitate maintenance, without taking everything offline.
