Product Description

ConfigCat.com lets you launch new features and change your software configuration remotely without actually (re)deploying code. ConfigCat SDKs enable easy integration with any web, mobile or backend applications. The ConfigCat website enables non-developers too to switch ON/OFF application features or change software configuration. This way you can decouple feature launches and configuration from code deployment.

What do you like best?

The ConfigCat feature set is robust and is accompanied by excellent documentation and samples. The team is responsive to feature requests, questions and problems on Slack. They take care of their customers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have had no complaints about ConfigCat at all. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ConfigCat allows us to deliver incomplete features to development and testing environments while not risking production environments. It gives us the ability to turn on features for specific sets of users or do A/B testing. This has smoothed out our Git branching and our CICD processes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

ConfigCat was easy to setup and evaluate. Their developer docs were excellent and we were able to get it integrated pretty easily. We were able to start using it to rapidly release features into our production environment without risking customers seeing things before it was ready.

It allows us to rapidly release software so we can create tighter feedback between our internal teams. New features are hidden behind a feature flag so Product, Design and Engineering can work together building new features for customers. We can also add specific customers to our alpha or beta tests and get their feedback early. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Documentation can be better, especially for how to integrate this as an Administrator and to use it as a Team. It is very developer centric, which as an engineer is great for me, but the views could use a little tweaking for non engineering users like Product Managers who just want a view of the feature flags.

Also the concept of a Product with Different Configuration spaces wasn't really documented too well and could use some explanation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They have a trial account that let's you evaluate the tool pretty well. Read the SDK documentation and try it out Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ConfigCat has allowed us to remove the fear of releasing code as part of our development process. My team and I can prototype and validate ideas quickly and get feedback from other stake holders like Product, Design and Operations and makes it so we don't have to worry about impacting customers.

It creates a tighter feedback loop so Engineers can get code into production faster which means iteration towards a better solution is sped up. If you are developing software products, it's extremely helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

ConfigCat is is providing special plan for students, which is the same as the Pro plan. This encourages students to explore new solutions, which might be used in their future work. Administration of feature flags and targeting users is very simple. Build in expressions and rules enable to target specific features in different types of applications: web, mobile, games, business apps. Also, ConfigCat is supported by many different platforms, eg.: .NET, Angular, node.js, Andorid, iOS and the SDKs for those platforms are open-source. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1) The user interface is a bit too overwhelming. It is simple but could be improved to be more transparent and faster managing feature flags.

2) There is no option to revoke a key.

3) Feature flags cannot be grouped. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you care about a simple configuration, very good support or you are a student and want to shine in front of classmates or teachers use ConfigCat. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It enabled me to change the rules of an application (game) without the need of redeploying it. It also enabled me to easily define different rules for development and production environment without the need of creating logic in my project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

ConfigCat is the first solution of its kind that I had ever tried and we use it on our production solution at our company. In terms of customer service they were super quick and kind, solving our questions and concerns in a very short time.

I'll continue to use their service to quickly change settings in our websites as well as our clients'. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Config Cat provides a beautiful easy to understand UI. It has quite a lot of features and more than just enabling and disabling flags. Moreover the free plan allows for using the full feature capacity allowing for knowing exactly what the service can and can't do before moving to a paid plan. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Feature flags can be very useful for some types of applications but that is not the case for most of them. So consider if you really need before adding them to your application for no reason. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used to split my application in two (Had two instances running). One for public use and one for testers of the new features. With feature flags I can easily combine them into one resulting in easier maintainability. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's easy to configure our systems using ConfigCat, allowing us to ditch the SSH-in-and-change configuration method Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It requires a constant internet connection, so it can't be used for an off-line application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Use a caching agent to not have to re-request your config every time Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
