Config Management Initiative

Configuration Management Initiative

This page collects content for those interested in being involved in the Configuration Management Initiative for Drupal 8. Hopefully this page will be able to provide a high level status of the various activities surrounding the initiative including

  • Highlighted Discussions - Open discussions on architecture issues or high-level interesting topics
  • Detailed Plans - Game plan proposals with more implementation details
  • Associated Issues - Issues from d.o related to parts of the initiative

In the future I can see this as a place where, for instance, we might tag issues and/or discussions with a particular sprint for tracking purposes and the like. All work is going to be done in the core sandbox project for the initiative. Right now this is pretty dead. There is a branch for UUID support but work has not begun yet. If you are interested, please provide feedback on the game plan listed below!

This page is a work in progress. If you have any feedback on it, or if there is any information you think would be useful to add, please let us know.

Example module using config management

Hi all,

After reading this blog post on the new config management initiative for D8, I thought an example module demonstrating a very simple use case, and a simple upgrade path from D7, use be of use.

I submitted it as a patch to the Examples for developers module, as well as a stand-alone zipped module, at http://drupal.org/node/1615520

(To use the upgrade path, install block_example for D7, then upgrade it for D8).

Cheers,

Albert.

Hey everyone! It's that time again! Lets gather around the campfire and discuss what is up with the configuration management initiative! Specifically I'd like to get more discussion around some architecture cleanup discussion we've been having (http://drupal.org/node/1560060) and also report the results of a long conversation we had this week about internationalization. Anything else to talk about? Let me know!

The meeting will be held in #drupal-cmi on freenode.

Configuration management initiative bi-weekly meeting

Start:

Organizers: 

It's time for another bi-weekly IRC meeting. One thing I would like to focus on in this meeting is the reload process, in particular the questions about how much we should be tracking changes to local environments and responding to that when configuration is reloaded. For more information on this issue, please read the following issues

Reload process (http://drupal.org/node/1447686)
Add a flag to the active store to track differences from canonical storage (http://drupal.org/node/1515312)

See you there.

Configuration Management initiative and Drupal distributions

What considerations need to be addressed to ensure the Configuration Management Initiative is informed by and reflects the needs of Drupal distributions?

The Configuration Management Initiative tackles problems that are distinct from but overlap with what's done in Drupal 7 with the Features module, the tool of choice for producing distributions. Features allows capturing bundles of configuration and deploying them in a form that can be reproduced on multiple sites.
