Remote Config Feature Manager for Flutter

[License: MIT]

Feature manager allows you to hide some unfinished/secret feature from your users, or experiments, that can be managed from remote data source or local settings.

If you need only local feature toggles or preferences use Feature Manager

Getting Started



remote_config_feature_manager : ^lastest_version

to your pubspec.yaml, and run

flutter packages get

in your project’s root directory.

Setup Firebase Remote Config in your project.

Basic Usage

Create feature list

Create file where you will store your feature list and create features inside. Don’t forget to specify remoteSourceKey from Remote Config.

import 'package:remote_config_feature_manager/remote_config_feature_manager.dart';

class Features {
  static const Feature textFeature = Feature(
    key: 'dev-prefs-text-pref',
    remoteSourceKey: 'remote_prefs_text_pref',
    title: 'Text pref',
    description: 'This is text preference',
    defaultValue: '',
    valueType: FeatureValueType.text,

  static const Feature booleanFeature = Feature(
    key: 'dev-prefs-bool-pref',
    remoteSourceKey: 'remote_prefs_bool_pref',
    title: 'Toggle pref',
    description: 'This is toggle preference',
    defaultValue: false,
    valueType: FeatureValueType.toggle,

  static const Feature doubleFeature = Feature(
    key: 'dev-prefs-double-pref',
    remoteSourceKey: 'remote_prefs_double_pref',
    title: 'Number double pref',
    description: 'This is number double preference',
    defaultValue: 0.0,
    valueType: FeatureValueType.doubleNumber,

  static const Feature integerFeature = Feature(
    key: 'dev-prefs-integer-pref',
    remoteSourceKey: 'remote_prefs_integer_pref',
    title: 'Number integer pref',
    description: 'This is number integer preference',
    defaultValue: 0,
    valueType: FeatureValueType.integerNumber,

  static const Feature jsonFeature = Feature(
    key: 'dev-prefs-json-pref',
    remoteSourceKey: 'remote_prefs_json_pref',
    title: 'Json pref',
    description: 'This is json preference',
    defaultValue: """{"value": "Json default value"}""",
    valueType: FeatureValueType.json,

  static const List<Feature> values = <Feature>[

Active feature manager

To create RemoteConfigFeatureManger provide SharedPreferences and FirebaseRemoteConfig instances.

final RemoteConfigFeatureManager featureManager = RemoteConfigFeatureManager(
          sharedPreferences: sharedPreferences,
          firebaseRemoteConfig: remoteConfig,

To fetch and active feature values use activate function.

await featureManager.activate(
            minimumFetchInterval: const Duration(
                  minutes: 5,

If you want to initialize FirebaseRemoteConfig elsewhere, you can just use refresh function to map remote values to your features.


Using RemoteConfigFeatureManager check whether feature is enabled. Preferable way to create RemoteConfigFeatureManager instance is to use DI (Provider, GetIt etc.).

final bool isEnabled =<RemoteConfigFeatureManager>().isEnabled(Features.booleanFeature);

Modify remote feature values in Firebase Console

Example 01

Modify feature values in DEBUG (develop) mode

To do it, you can simply open DeveloperPreferences screen in any part of your app. You should pass list of your features as parameter for this screen.

P.S. You should hide this button for production builds.

    builder: (BuildContext context) =>

Feature parameters

Parameter Default Description
key String required This key will be used to store value in local storage.
type FeatureType FeatureType.feature It can be used to separate local features and experiments driven by some remote provider.
valueType FeatureValueType required Type of value of the feature. If you need toggle, use FeatureValueType.toggle
title String required Title that will be used inside Developer Preferences Screen.
remoteSourceKey String Key from remote source.
description String Description that will be used inside Developer Preferences Screen.
value Object? Null Stored value of the Feature. Will be fetched from local storage.
defaultValue Object? Null Default value of the Feature. Will be returned by FeatureManager if stored value is Null
enum FeatureType { feature, experiment }
enum FeatureValueType { text, toggle, doubleNumber, integerNumber, json }
