Module updates based on YAML files

All we love the awesomeness of configuration management in Drupal 8. In instant button click or drush command execution we are deploying the hours of hard work on our local computers to production servers. This is the best and easiest way of promoting the changes within different environments of the same site. But what if you are a module or distribution developer, or you just want your changelog to be more efficiently structured, so you can easily track the configuration changes.

With help of “Configuration Rewrite” module and inspired by developing deGov distribution and by discussions with Thunder distribution developers, our company proposes the other way of conducting module updates that requires configuration changes or block placement. All you need is to create the diff of configurations that need to be updated. Interested, come to Drupal Camp Ruhr and visit my session.
