About this provider

OpenFeature React SDK allows you to connect to your GO Feature Flag instance with the @openfeature/react-sdk.

If you work with React the @openfeature/react-sdk will give you a better integration with your React application. To integrate it with GO Feature Flag, you need to use the @openfeature/go-feature-flag-web-provider provider.

Install the provider

npm install @openfeature/go-feature-flag-web-provider
npm install @openfeature/web-sdk
npm install @openfeature/react-sdk
npm install @openfeature/core

How to use the provider?

OpenFeatureProvider context provider

The OpenFeatureProvider is a React context provider which represents a scope for feature flag evaluations within a React application. It binds an OpenFeature client to all evaluations within child components, and allows the use of evaluation hooks.

import { EvaluationContext, OpenFeature, OpenFeatureProvider, useFlag } from "@openfeature/react-sdk";
import { GoFeatureFlagWebProvider } from "@openfeature/go-feature-flag-web-provider";

const goFeatureFlagWebProvider = new GoFeatureFlagWebProvider({
endpoint: "http://localhost:1031"

// Set the initial context for your evaluations
targetingKey: "user-1",
admin: false

// Instantiate and set our provider (be sure this only happens once)!
// Note: there's no need to await its initialization, the React SDK handles re-rendering and suspense for you!

// Enclose your content in the configured provider
function App() {
return (
<Page />

Evaluation hooks

Within the provider, you can use the various evaluation hooks to evaluate flags.

function Page() {
// Use the "query-style" flag evaluation hook, specifying a flag-key and a default value.
const { value: showNewMessage } = useFlag('new-message', true);
return (
<div className="App">
<header className="App-header">
{showNewMessage ? <p>Welcome to this OpenFeature-enabled React app!</p> : <p>Welcome to this React app.</p>}
