DTM Switch is Ready For Launch

by Mar 8, 2018

Adobe DTM Switch with its 28,000+ weekly users is now the Launch and DTM Switch. We have over­hauled it to support Launch, by Adobe envi­ron­ments as well as DTM staging.

Have you ever wondered what life was like before we had the Adobe DTM Switch chrome exten­sion? Hop in my time machine. Desti­na­tion: Early 2013.

Dood­ly­doo — dood­ly­doo — dood­ly­doo — dood­ly­doo

We’ve arrived! What we see is the noble DTM devel­oper, who wants to see how her tagging changes will work on her produc­tion website. She opens the dev console on her browser and types a myste­ri­ous command.

> localStorage.setItem(‘sdsat_stagingLibrary’,true)

She types another command…

> _satellite.setDebug(true)

WOW. That was arduous! I’m sure glad to have the Adobe DTM Switch so that I don’t have to type those commands over and over. Aren’t you? Thanks, Joel Stachow­icz, for creat­ing the orig­i­nal DTM Switch!

Now let’s get back in the time machine. Desti­na­tion: The very near future.

Dood­ly­doo — dood­ly­doo — dood­ly­doo — dood­ly­doo

Wow. We’re here. It’s the very near future. Observe if you will, the noble Launch devel­oper. She’s built a new Launch library in her personal devel­op­ment envi­ron­ment, and she wants to test it out on her staging server. Lucky for her, the Launch and DTM Switch has seam­lessly recorded all of the envi­ron­ment embed codes from the Envi­ron­ments tab of Launch! She clicks the Search Discovery rock­et­ship in her browser, selects her dev envi­ron­ment, and, voila! she’s seeing her changes take effect locally.

The future looks pretty great! Thanks, Daniel Upton, for the rewrite to support both Launch and DTM!

Alas, we must get back.Hop in. Desti­na­tion: The present.

Dood­ly­doo — dood­ly­doo — dood­ly­doo — dood­ly­doo

And…Whoooosh! We’re back to the present day.

After this adven­ture, I’m left with two ques­tions.

  1. DOH! Why didn’t you buy Bitcoin your second time in 2013?
  2. Isn’t it nice to have one less thing to think about as you plan your migra­tion to Launch
