About the Book

Any application normally needs some environment-specific configuration details: the hostname and port of the database server, the access token for the mail delivery service API and many others. Once your application starts spanning more than one machine, the distribution of the configuration can start becoming troublesome.This book shows some approaches for managing and distributing the configuration of your Node application.
