The Config Assistant plugin is a powerful platform plugin which significantly reduces the work necessary to create and deploy Movable Type plugins and themes.

The plugin streamlines the plugin and theme development process by extending the grammar of each plugin's YAML-based configuration file (config.yaml) to allow for new and powerful features which previously required a significant amount of Perl, template markup code, or both.

Plugin and theme development becomes as easy as dropping a single folder into the 'addons' or 'plugins' directory, completely eliminating the extra steps required for end users to deploy plugin or theme static content.
