What is Feature Toggle? A short definition.

1 minute reading time

A feature toggle, also known as a feature switch or a feature flag, is a software development technique that allows developers to quickly and easily enable or disable specific features of a software application without having to deploy a new version of the application.

This allows developers to test new features in a live environment without disrupting the user experience, and to roll back changes if necessary.

Feature toggles are commonly used in agile development and continuous delivery processes.
