LaunchDarkly Server-side SDK for Go
Supported Go versions
This version of the LaunchDarkly SDK has been tested with Go 1.8 through 1.10.
Refer to the SDK documentation for instructions on getting started with using the SDK.
Go's standard HTTP library provides built-in support for the use of an HTTPS proxy. If the HTTPS_PROXY environment variable is present then the SDK will proxy all network requests through the URL provided.
How to set the HTTPS_PROXY environment variable on Mac/Linux systems:
How to set the HTTPS_PROXY environment variable on Windows systems:
If your proxy requires authentication then you can prefix the URN with your login information:
Feature flag data can be kept in a persistent store using Redis, Consul, or DynamoDB. These adapters are implemented in the subpackages
lddynamodb; to use them, call the
New...FeatureStore function provided by the subpackage, and put the returned object in the
FeatureStore field of your client configuration. See the subpackages and the SDK reference guide for more information.
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.
We encourage pull requests and other contributions from the community. Check out our contributing guidelines for instructions on how to contribute to this SDK.
- 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.
- LaunchDarkly provides feature flag SDKs for a wide variety of languages and technologies. Check out our documentation for a complete list.
