Inspired by Treelon Musk we decided to do our part in the fight against deforestation and climate change. In Nov 2019 we partnered with a non-profit organization

MyForest to support local forests by planting trees after every purchase of the ConfigCat service and whenever someone gives feedback.

There is a way to stream feature flag and configuration changes to the clients right when they happen. In some cases ConfigCat's pull based architecture does not completely satisfies the requirements when microservices need the latest values instantly, or mobile apps where polling sometimes is a battery consuming anti-pattern.

TL;DR

Your application subscribes to a PubNub channel to get updates about changes. And use

ConfigCat Webhooks to notify PubNub when a feature flag value gets updated.Sample application in Node.js.![push-noti](/assets/push-noti.png)

Satisfying the feature request of our customers from the mobile app development industry, ConfigCat now supports semantic version (SemVer) based user targeting. Typical use case where app builders wish to enable or disable features based on the iOS or Android version on the device their app is running on. For example deciding if 2.3.40 is less than or equals 2.30.4 sometimes not that straightforward by only using the traditional < > = comparators.

How using feature flags makes your product development successful and safe?

By the given example you can follow the process from idea to satisfied customers

Software (or even hardware) development could be a real challenge. Not just because it needs all your attention and a lot of time to do but you cannot be sure (even if you made research on the market) that your customers would like the new feature or product.

That is the reason why product development is not just a part of a job, but it is an independent work. It needs specialists, managers, tactics, and tools too. Having a good idea is far too little to give off the perfect software product - you are going to need the best people and the best tools for that.

We'd like to make ConfigCat avaliable for as many users as possible. Our SDKs are avalible in multiple languages. But still lots of our users missed Ruby support in ConfigCat:

"Does configcat have Ruby sdk??"

"So I am sad you don’t have a ruby client I can see."

"Are you plannig to support ruby?"

Finally we decided to create a standalone Ruby SDK.
Ruby is an interpreted language. It's very similar to Python and we already have an SDK written in Python. Taking advantage of this, the first idea was that we simply convert our Python code to Ruby and everything will be just fine.
