Getting Started

Setting up Flipper takes only a few minutes.

Choose the right guide for your setup below or let us know if you would prefer to have us do it for you. We'd love to help! For the moment, Flipper Cloud only supports ruby applications. If there is another language you would like to see support for, we would love to know.

Choose between Flipper Cloud or Cloudless (self-hosted) installation, and don't worry, you can easily switch between the two, so you won't be locked into this decision.

  • Cloud - If you're part of a team that needs feature flags or run multiple services that could benefit from a centralized and shared set of feature flags, you'll benefit more with Flipper Cloud. And if you find out that Cloudless is enough for you, you can easily turn off Flipper Cloud, and Flipper will still work just fine.
    • Flipper Cloud serves as the system of record for feature flag state and optionally synchronizes with an application's local datastore
    • Flipper Cloud serves as a central backup for your local datastores
    • Manage multiple organizations and projects in one place
    • Support for multiple users and fine-grained permissions
    • Support for managing multiple environments and local development environments
    • Full audit history for feature changes
    • Feature rollbacks to any point in time
    • Personal development environments with isolated feature flags
  • Cloudless - If you're a solo developer or just want to take Flipper for a quick test drive, Cloudless is quick and easy, and you're able to migrate to Flipper Cloud any time in the future if you need the additional functionality. Of course, since it's self-hosted, it's also entirely free, so there's that.
    • Your local datastore is the system of record for feature flags
    • You'll be responsible for managing backups of your Flipper datastore
    • Provides basic feature flags stored locally in your application
    • No support for multiple users, environments, audit history, or rollbacks
    • Optional Basic web interface available through the flipper-ui gem
