We have a beautiful web interface for managing your organizations, projects, environments and features. Additionally, we expose a simple HTTP API along with a client library that takes only a few minutes to integrate into your application.
When you create a project, it comes preloaded with a production environment and a personal environment for each developer to get you up and running quickly. But we support as many other environments as necessary (e.g. staging, smoke, Heroku review app, or whatever you can dream up).
Just show me the code! Ok, here is a quick example:
# FLIPPER_CLOUD_TOKEN=<your-token-here> require "flipper-cloud" if Flipper.enabled?(:billing) # get paid else # wish you were getting paid end
Steve leans toward the form (design) and John toward the function (code). Brandon is smack dab in the middle -- great at both. You could say our combined skill sets make the perfect sandwich.
We owned a company together a decade ago where we were consultants and built a few products. In 2011, we were acquired by GitHub. We worked there for many years — while it grew from 50 to thousands of employees.
While at GitHub we maintained their open source setup of Flipper (among many other things), which served billions of feature checks a day (and was one of the most stable pieces of infrastructure).
Seeing how Flipper changed the way GitHub released software was neat. Why not re-build it so everyone can partake? Thus Flipper Cloud was born.
In 2018, we created a new company (Fewer & Faster) to build Flipper Cloud.
