We recently created a video exploring the Configu Orchestrator open-source platform, a game-changer in configuration management.

As seasoned developers, you’re well aware of the challenges in managing and keeping track of configuration data. It’s often scattered across various stores, databases, files, and third-party systems like secrets managers, parameter stores, and so on. The burden of integrating these systems and maintaining consistency falls on you, the developer, complicating your workflow.

Enter Configu Orchestrator, an open source tool that simplifies your life by automating the configuration workflow from code to runtime across all environments. It provides a unified interface that rules them all, eliminating the need to juggle multiple systems.

What sets Configu apart? Our Configuration-as-Code approach. Unlike traditional solutions that treat configurations as unstructured data or key-value pairs, Configu models configurations and treats them as first-class citizens in the code, ensuring structure and consistency.

The video dives into the core concepts of Configu Orchestrator, including: 

Config – The fundamental data model that defines your application’s behavior. Each Config carries a unique key, a context set, and the actual configuration value. It’s like your application’s DNA, ready to be brought to life.

ConfigStore – A dynamic storage engine that adapts to different systems and services. It could be a database, a file, a secret manager, or even a custom solution.

ConfigSchema – a special file, adorned with the .cfgu extension, declares the genetic code of your application. It establishes the bindings between Config keys and their respective Cfgu declarations, specifying characteristics, and constraints for each value. With ConfigSchema, your configurations adhere to a predefined structure, ensuring harmony and consistency

Configu-Interface: With unified APIs like the Configu SDKs and the Configu CLI, developers, and DevOps engineers can interact with configuration data effortlessly. These interfaces bridge the gap between you and the ConfigStore, giving you full control over your application’s behavior.

Watch the video to see it in action.

If you’re ready to take your configuration-management to the next level, Visit our open source project on GitHub. We’ve prepared a detailed guide and a demo to help you get started. If you find it useful, we’d appreciate your star. Better yet, why not contribute to the project or provide feedback? We’d love to hear from you.
