Statsig FAQs

What happens when the react client initializes after a useGate call?

When using the useGate hook in the React SDK, if the provider does not wait for initialization and useGate is called before the initialization completes, it will return false on the initial read. However, once the client eventually initializes, it will cause a re-render of the component that is using the useGate hook.

This re-render is triggered because the useGate hook updates its state with the actual value of the gate once initialization is complete. It's important to note that this re-render will occur regardless of whether the gate value is true or false. The key point is that the state of the gate has updated, which triggers the re-render.

For handling loading states while the Statsig client initializes, you can use the isLoading value. Once the Statsig client state changes, your component will be called again and you can handle the true/false gate state as desired. For more details, refer to the Statsig React SDK documentation.

We evaluated Optimizely, LaunchDarkly, Split, and Eppo, but ultimately selected Statsig due to its comprehensive end-to-end integration. We wanted a complete solution rather than a partial one, including everything from the stats engine to data ingestion.
