About CRS

CRS is an acronym for Configuration Repository System. The system is comprised of:

  1. a web application that hosts all the configurations.
  2. a small library that can be used within your own application to retrieve configuration settings.

CRS Objectives

  • Ease administration by centralizing configuration.
  • Ease the staging of applications.
  • Ease development.

Ease administration

Centralize all configuration on one server makes it easy to quickly find the right configuration file and makes backing up much easier.

Ease staging

CRS provides a system to create derived configurations per environment: development, testing, acceptance and production.

Ease development

CRS checks if the content of the configuration is valid. Settings are type-save.
