Drupal 8.8 introduced a new setting: https://www.drupal.org/node/3079028
By adding these lines to your settings.local.php I expected the modules and their configuration to be excluded from config export.
$settings['config_exclude_modules'] = ['kint', 'devel'];
- kint and devel still appear in my core.extensions.yml
- Yaml files related to devel still get generated.
- Modules are still removed and installed based on the core.extensions.yml
How does this feature work?
Edit: I upgraded from Drupal 8.7, that seems to keep this function to work properly.
