Getting started

1. Install the package with Composer

composer require configcat/configcat-client

2. Go to Connect your application tab to get your API Key:

API-KEY

3. Create the ConfigCat client instance

$client = new \ConfigCat\ConfigCatClient("#YOUR-API-KEY#");

4. Get your setting value:

$isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled = $client->getValue("isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled", false);
if(is_bool($isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled) && $isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled) {
    doTheNewThing();
} else {
    doTheOldThing();
}

Getting user specific setting values with Targeting

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 getValue() function.

Read more about Targeting here.

User object

Percentage and targeted rollouts are calculated by the user object you can optionally pass to the configuration requests. The user object must be created with a mandatory identifier parameter which should uniquely identify each user:

$user = new \ConfigCat\User("#USER-IDENTIFIER#"); // mandatory

$isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled = $client->getValue("isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled", false, $user);
if(is_bool($isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled) && $isMyAwesomeFeatureEnabled) {
    doTheNewThing();
} else {
    doTheOldThing();
}
