Chapter 2. Diving into Salt Internals

Now that we have covered the basic concepts, it's time to start looking at how Salt works under the hood. In this chapter, we will:

  • Discover how Salt manages configuration files

  • Look at how the Renderer system works

  • Discuss how the Loader system handles modules

  • Explore the State compiler, which drives so much of Salt

With a more comprehensive understanding of the internals of Salt, you will be able to craft configurations and States that take advantage of the architectural decisions that inspired the design of Salt.
