Been looking at shared configuration solutions. Currently looking at either Apache ZooKeeper or etcd but wouldn’t be opposed to suggestions or opinions.

Personally leaning towards etcd.

@quantumly with what do you share the configs? Never heard that ZooKeeper is used for this. Probably it is possible, but sounds like an oversized tool.

@ghost_letters I presumed it was used for configuration since they include this in their landing page "ZooKeeper is a centralized service for maintaining configuration information, naming, providing distributed synchronization, and providing group services." Though personally looking more into it, it seems that etcd would be better for my use.

@quantumly I like the approach of Spring Cloud Config Server. Basically it reads the config from a git repo and provides it to the apps. Does work with non spring apps, but not sure how convenient it is to use for other frameworks

@ghost_letters Ty for the recommendation. Will surely try it since I see an NPM and Hex library for it.
