Chamber is the auto-encrypting, extremely organizable, Heroku-loving, CLI-having, non-extra-repo-needing, non-Rails-specific-ing, CI-serving configuration management library.


Our Ten Commandments of Configuration Management

  1. Thou shalt be configurable, but use conventions so that configuration isn't necessary
  2. Thou shalt seamlessly work with Heroku or other deployment platforms, where custom settings must be stored in environment variables
  3. Thou shalt seamlessly work with Travis CI and other cloud CI platforms
  4. Thou shalt not force users to use arcane long_variables_to_keep_their_settings_organized
  5. Thou shalt not require users keep a separate repo or cloud share sync just to keep their secure settings updated
  6. Thou shalt not be bound to a single framework like Rails (it should be usable in plain Ruby projects)
  7. Thou shalt have an easy-to-use CLI for scripting
  8. Thou shalt easily integrate with Capistrano for deployments
  9. Thou shalt be well documented with full test coverage
  10. Thou shalt not have to worry about accidentally committing secure settings
