Key points from our configuration management sessions.

Unfortunately none of us from Nuvole are attending DrupalCon Baltimore and can’t, therefore, attend the “hallway track” and join discussions in person. We have held presentations about advanced configuration management in Drupal 8 at all Drupal events we attended in the last year including the last DrupalCon in Dublin. So I’ll try to cover some concepts here that could help the discussion about how the configuration management can be improved.

Our presentation at DrupalCon Dublin 2016

Developers often want to use Configuration Management outside its intended use case. New workflows and practices have to be established. We've just presented a gallery of problems and solutions at DrupalCon Dublin 2016. The room was packed, and many people were denied admission for security reasons. For them, and for those who didn't manage to come to this DrupalCon, we are making the full presentation available here:

Use Features together with a configuration management workflow and get the best of both worlds.

Features for Drupal 8 will exist and it is already in alpha state. This may be surprising to some, given the partial overlap with Configuration Management: but Features and Configuration Management will complement each other in Drupal 8 if both are used the right way.

The D8 way to replace "features-update" and "features-revert-all".

One of the new key features of Drupal 8 is the possibility to deal with configuration in code.

Configuration Management in Drupal 8 elegantly solves staging configuration between different environments but it still misses the ability to package configuration into separates modules for later reuse. A patched version of the Configuration development module helps addressing that!

Features done right? Features done wrong? What changed, what improved, what's still missing.

Nuvole gave two talks about the current status of Configuration Management in Drupal 8 at European Drupal events in the last few weeks: Drupal Days Milan 2014 and Drupal Camp Alpe Adria 2014. Developers attending the events were mostly interested in how the future Drupal 8 Configuration Management capabilities will compare to Drupal 7, with and without the Features module.
