Feature Flags - The extendable and adaptable Laravel Feature Flags package for managing flags within code

Latest Version on Packagist Tests Check & fix styling codecov Total Downloads Help Fund

A Feature flag is at times referred to as a feature toggle or feature switch. Ultimately it's a coding strategy to be used along with source control to make it easier to continuously integrate and deploy. The idea of the flags works by essentially safe guarding sections of code from executing if a feature flag isn't in a switched on state.

This package aims to make implementing such flags across your application a great deal easier by providing solutions that work with not only your code but your routes, blade files, task scheduling and validations.

The Feature flagging dashboard for Laravel

flagfox - the power to deploy features form your own dashboard via a single Laravel package

In late 2022 we decided to start work on a dashboard that will work on top of all the awesomeness that Feature flags for Laravel gives you. Right now you can join the waiting list.

How adding feature flags looks with this package

It's pretty simple, you can start of with just simple calls to check if a flag's state is on or off.

Features::accessible('my-feature') // returns true or false

One of the unique features of this package is that it integrates heavily into Laravel by allowing you to configure different things such as access to route, schedule tasks or modifying the query builder.

To get a full understanding, it's best to read the docs.

Upgrading

This project is currently at version 2 and is somewhat different to version 1. If you are using Laravel 9 and PHP8 you should aim to use version 2. Version 1 is no longer supported. There is an upgrade guide for moving from version 1 to version 2.

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require ylsideas/feature-flags:^2.0

Once installed you should publish the config with the following command.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="YlsIdeas\FeatureFlags\FeatureFlagsServiceProvider" --tag=config

You can customise the features.php config in a number of ways.
