Toggling feature for Front end code

Hi I would like to toggle on or off just a piece of Front end code inside a component (Existing/New)

The desired flow as follows,

* dev completes work which is only to be made available on the live site on a certain date
* dev creates a toggle for the feature, and pushes the change live with the feature toggled off
* once the desired date has arrived, a person (someone with sufficient access) can make a simple content change to turn the toggle on, and publishes the change
* the feature is now available on the live site

Any help with Ideas on how to make this possible or code?

Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In it's basic form, a simple if statement may be sufficient. Default a variable to false, wrap the code in an if block to check the variable, and then when ready the admin can switch the variable to true.

Other more complicated solutions exist (version control for instance) but without knowing more about your app, can't really give you a specific answer.
