How much does it cost to launch your indie company's first mobile game? Even if you can make the game, with the app store registration costs, the development hardware, the testing devices, the licences and localisation. How much do you need to break even?

I get the appeal of digital forms for a game book. I really do. Heck, I’m often looking at them every day here on my computer. However, I will always still love to have a hard copy of a book to look through. Just something about actually turning the pages and the feel of it. […]

Nuvole: Configuration Management dimensions

Planet Drupal - 25 April 2017 - 5:07am
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.

To me there are at least two important dimensions to configuration management in Drupal 8 and different contrib project have sprouted to address:

Vertical: transfer configuration between different environments of the same site.
Horizontal: transfer configuration between different sites.

Following are a few contrib solutions and core issues that address the different itches. This is not meant to be an exhaustive or definitive list but highlight the different problem spaces. Many more contrib solutions address some issues in this space to accommodate various different workflows.


Drupal 8 core only addresses this use case, however, there are some important cases not covered (yet). The management of configuration between the different environments is best taken care of by importing and exporting the whole sites configuration together.

Installing from existing configuration:

Contrib solution: Config installer
Core issues: Allow a site to be installed from existing configuration, Allow a profile to be installed from existing config

Environment specific configuration (ie devel only on develop)

Contrib solution: Config Split
Core issues: Allow exported configuration to be environment-specific, Allow development modules to opt out of config-export

Configuration with Content

Contrib solution: Default Content, Deploy


Due to the fact that the same tools can be used for both dimensions and the fact that in Drupal 7 features was abused for doing the vertical configuration management as well this concept may not be so clear. Ideally configuration between sites is shared from the development environment of one site to the development environment of another, and the vertical tools with drupal core are used for deployment. Moving configuration between different sites is done by moving a subset of configuration between environments.

Re-using a set of configuration in another site

Contrib Solution: Features
There are many more modules designed to deal with distributions and dealing with the paradigm that sites now own the configuration.

Inheriting installation profiles

Core issue: Allow profiles to provide a base/parent profile

Multisite with large portion of shared configuration

Contrib Solution: Config Split
While this is not the original problem it tries to solve, it is reported to be used for it..


I may have an obvious bias towards config split since we maintain that module but it is just one of many config related modules. I hope there is a fruitful discussion in Baltimore about configuration management in Drupal 8. BoF

Over the last five years I've worked in a variety of senior Drupal developer positions, but my dirty secret is, I've never really contributed back to Drupal. Until the last few weeks, that is. So, I thought I'd take the time to write about why that is, and what's changed.
