Announcing Support for Node.js in Harness Feature Flags


We’re excited to announce that Harness Feature Flags now officially supports our open source Node.js SDK. Users can now leverage Node.js in their server-side applications and services for all of their feature flag needs.

Especially for networked applications and services that leverage JavaScript across the whole stack, Node.js is a staple. With how popular it is, and an ever-expanding pool of packages, it’s also the server-side language of choice for many organizations. The large user base and long list of use cases that Node.js supports made it an easy decision for us to provide a dedicated server-side SDK for Harness Feature Flags.

Get Started With Node.js For Feature Flags

It’s important to note that users can expect the same feature support and performance that they’re used to from other open source Harness Feature Flag SDKs. If you’re already familiar with any of the other SDKs supported, the same patterns and use cases apply.

To start using Node.js for your own feature flags, check out the Node.js SDK Reference. This will walk you through how to get a hold of the SDK, how to initialize, and of course, how to create your first feature flag.

Getting Your First Feature Flag Into Production

Using the Node.js SDK is only half the equation. While it’s critical to ensure the SDK is working as expected, wrapping your features or changes in a flag inside your codebase is one of two things you need to do to have a fully functional feature flag.

If you haven’t already, you’ll want to head over to your Harness project and create the flag in the app itself. Once both pieces are done, you’ll be ready to roll out your feature flag. If you need additional help, you can either follow the in-app wizard, or you can check out the Getting Started documentation.

Happy flagging!

We want to hear from you
