Set cookies to route requests to specific service versions
Houston Cookie Manager lets you see all versions of your site that are currently deployed and preview a specific version, even if it's not exposed to any of your customers.
Why would you want to do this?
— Test the latest version before you release to your customers.
— Show your product manager the new UI that's still on a branch, using real data.
— Make sure you really did fix that bug that only appears in production.
— Debug a bad release after rolling it back.
Getting started is easy! It's just 3 steps:
1) Download this extension.
2) Install Houston. Sign up at turbinelabs.io.
3) Modify the end of your CI/CD pipeline to deploy new versions side-by-side, as if you're going to do a blue/green release.
Houston supports virtually any infrastructure and any CI/CD tool. Read more at docs.turbinelabs.io.
