345 software is built by developers, for developers.
345 introduces cloco: cloco is the new Configuration-as-a-Service API that allows developers to manage the full life-cycle of their bespoke application configuration from dev to test to stage to live.
It’s about time we started taking configuration seriously. We’ve all done it: application configuration scatter-gunned over environment variables, varying file formats on disk, bespoke look-up database tables, and if you’re stuck doing the corporate time-warp again through no fault of your own, registry entries. Gnarly enough when it’s just you and your dev machine, positively Groot across your testing, staging, and distributed live environments. Deployments and ops are hard enough to get right without the extra variables surrounding your configuration thrown in the mix between deployment scripts. A lot of the time, config is too complicated to fit easily into a bunch of environment variables.
How can we make this better? We’ve been thinking about the concept of Configuration-as-a-Service, and how it can make your custom application configuration easy and secure. It encapsulates configuration management for your mutable business data, technical configuration settings and sensitive data such as keys & credentials. As a design pattern, it helps you architect your solution cleanly by separating configurable business logic, data and technical information from both your code, and from your infrastructure. Configuration-as-a-Service allows developers and admins to manage securely the full life-cycle of your bespoke application configuration from the cradle to the grave in highly distributed environments.
cloco is a new concept, by 345. cloco is the new Configuration-as-a-Service API that allows developers to manage the full life-cycle of their bespoke application configuration from dev to test to stage to live. CloCo manages configuration for highly distributed applications. cloco’s code-centric api-first model ensures that you are consuming your own custom business configuration quickly.
cloco is cloud configuration.
