Being able to put Drupal’s configuration into version control is a feature I’d been looking forward to using as soon as it was announced it would be a major feature of Drupal 8. Compared to Drupal 7’s method of using features, it would be a major leap forward, and having now delivered a number of Drupal 8 projects, I can confirm that is certainly the case. Configuration synchronisation is now an instinctive part of my development workflow so the Configuration Split module (config split) is naturally of interest.
