Help to decide the direction of Config Split

Config Split has worked mostly the same way as it did when the first beta release was tagged in 2016. The 8.x-1.x branch is using Config Filter as the API to hook into the configuration management of Drupal. But since Drupal 8.8 we have a much better API in Drupal core which allows us to do more complex things with simpler code than the Config Filter API did. The core API was designed with the lessons learned from Config Filter in mind after all.

Supercharge Drupal 8 migration process by externalizing data export and transformation.

When having to import data onto a Drupal 8 site there is no other choice than relying on core’s Migrate API and its contrib ecosystem. At Nuvole we have adopted a so called "middle-format approach". The process simply moves the Extract and Transform parts outside Drupal so to ease the production of an easy to import dataset, in a well known middle-format (such as JSON API).

A new workflow for distribution configuration management.

Config Distro allows distribution developers to say how the "distributions configuration" is supposed to be updated and it allows distribution-based site developers to treat the distribution maintainers as a developer on their team.

Config Split treats all the cli the same.

Drupal 8.4 and its upgrade to Symfony 3 has made the compatibility of the global Drush 8 a bit more challenging. Drush 9 works with Drupal 8.4 but it is not stable yet and the format of how third party Drush commands are made has changed significantly.

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.
