Contextual Configuration in Core: Do We Want It and Can We Do It? By Ken Rickard
Tuesday, September 27, 2016
3:45 - 4:45pm
Room: Liffey Meeting 4

Why you shouldn’t miss it:

  • If you need to change site variables within a specific context, such as a group, a domain, or a workspace, building a UI is currently blocked by core limitations.
  • For instance, do you need to change the timezone of your site based on that language of your users? Right now, you have to do that with YAML files.
  • We’ll explore these limitations, discuss possible solutions, and try to decide if it’s important enough to fix.
