We're excited to announce that GO Feature Flag is now one of the first flag management systems to support the Open Feature Remote Evaluation Protocol (OFREP) (currently in an experimental stage).

This is a significant step towards the adoption of Open Feature, a community-driven initiative aiming to standardize feature flag management across different platforms.

What is OFREP?

OFREP is an API specification that allows you to connect your applications to any feature flag management system that supports the protocol using generic providers. This means more flexibility and choice when it comes to managing your features.

For the full technical details, you can head over to the Open Feature Protocol documentation: Open Feature Protocol:

Why is this exciting?

While OFREP is still under development, its potential is significant. By integrating with OFREP, GO Feature Flag positions itself for:

  • Platform Independence: Easily connect your applications to different feature flag systems without code changes (once OFREP is widely adopted).
  • Flexibility: Choose the feature flag management solution that best suits your needs (future benefit).
  • Standardization: Foster collaboration and interoperability within the developer community (future benefit).

Open Feature Providers: A Call to Action!

While OFREP itself is in its experimental stages, Open Feature Providers are still in the Proof-of-Concept (POC) phase. This is a fantastic opportunity for developers and organizations to contribute to building this ecosystem.

If you're passionate about feature flagging and want to be part of the Open Feature revolution, we encourage you to reach out and get involved!

Let's move forward, together!

We at GO Feature Flag believe that OFREP has the potential to pave the way for a more unified and efficient approach to feature management. By joining the Open Feature movement, we hope to empower developers and create a stronger feature flagging landscape for everyone.

Stay tuned for further updates as we continue to explore the possibilities of OFREP.
