Hi everyone! We’re seriously looking into GrowthBook as the solution for A/B testing for our RoR applications. Does anyone have experience setting GrowthBook up with RoR? Is it a complex and time consuming endeavour? We’re potentially looking for a freelancer who could help us, if there are some experienced people in here 🙂 Thanks a lot!

Hi Erik, did you also want to use the feature flags?

Yes! I am sure both would be relevant for us. We are already using feature flags but in the code (true/false) rather than in a user interface, so that would be cool!

We're still working on updating our Ruby SDK to support feature flags

Allright! But our main use case is for A/B tests and data on those… is that functional as of now for RoR and do you know of anyone successfully integrating it?

Cool @plain-lizard-13513! How much time did you spend on integration? What prerequisites would you say there are? Is it working as expected, any downsides? Thanks a lot!

you can get something setup pretty quickly we ended up creating a service that could be called from a controller ala
put_in_experiment?(name, only_logged_in:)
that hides a lot of the complexity. We already had mixpanel set up via Segment so there was no overhead there for us You'll want to make sure your setup can handle showing the test suite the control version, and add specific tests (we put ours in
spec/experiments
) to test the variations. And yeah it works as expected. Prior to setting up Growthbook I spent genuinely days trying to get backend experiments to work with Google Analytics + Segment and for the life of me couldn't get them to play nice. Then luckily stumbled across GrowthBook - I'd recommend it whole heartedly

Not bad! I suppose you haven’t tried the visual editor? We are hoping that our marketing team could start and track experiments in our RoR apps without involvement of Devs..
