Announcing Support for Python in Harness Feature Flags
It's here: Python support for Feature Flags! More coming soon.
We’re excited to announce that Harness Feature Flags now officially supports our open source Python SDK. Users can now leverage Python in their server-side applications and services for all of their feature flag needs.
Python in recent years has become one of the most popular programming languages across the world, used in everything from machine learning to website building to testing. Great for beginners and veterans alike, it quickly became a no-brainer to support Python for our users.
Get Started With Python 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 Python for your own feature flags, check out the Python 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 Python 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.
