Drupal 10: Using A Lazy Builder To Create A Dynamic Button
Adding dynamic and interactive elements to a web page can be a challenge, and there are a few techniques available in Drupal to allow for this.
Drupal 10: Using Parameter Converters To Create Paths For Custom Entities
Drupal's path system gives authors the ability to override the path of an item of content. Whilst the internal path of a page might be "/node/1" the external path can be anything you want, and can be set when editing the item of content.
Drupal 10: Creating Context Aware Plugins
In previous articles I have written about injecting context into context aware plugins and creating custom context providers and wanted to complet
Drupal 10: Migrating Flags With The Migrate Module
I've been doing a bit of Drupal migration recently, and one of the tasks I have undertaken is to migrate "likes" from a Drupal 7 site to a Drupal 10 site.
Drupal 10: Programmatically Injecting Context Into Blocks
Context definitions in Drupal are really useful when you want to inject context into your plugins and I have been using them for a little while now. It has made building custom blocks to add content to pages much easier as I don't need to copy the same block of code to find an entity of a particular sort into the block plugin.
Drupal 10: Creating Custom Context Providers
I previously looked at injecting context providers into context aware plugins. This time I will explore more about creating our own context providers to plug into this system.
I would not advise to do this. I'm not sure if it works on Drupal 8, but it definitely does NOT work on Drupal 9+ websites. I attempted to do this on a new website I just created, to see if the process works. I exported the config of a Drupal 9 website I created a few weeks ago and imported it in the new Drupal 9 website, after changing the site ID in the exported config bundle.
What seems to have happened when I tried it:
Indeed, Drupal check the site ID system.site.yml file, but it also uses the IDs in every other files. If an entity exists in Drupal but is not present in the import (i.e. it can not find its ID in the import), Drupal will delete the entity on the website. Since every single entities in Drupal have a different ID from the one in the import, Drupal attempts to delete every single entities before creating the new one. Unfortunately, Drupal can't function without any entities, so it dies and can't perform the import, leaving you with a broken website.

Thanks for the information Gael.
I wonder if the effect you are seeing in Drupal 9+ is something do to with Configuration 2.0? Sounds like not only would you need to alter the main site ID, but also the uuid of every item of configuration in your site.
I have to admit that this technique is a bit of an edge case, but it sometimes got me out of certain situations in Drupal 8. Situations created by certain local development environments that I wont mention here.

Just ran on a new Drupal 9 install as part of trying to instal a themeforrest theme. Found the same problem as commented by Gael.
In th eINSTALL directory of the unzipped theme is 485 yml config files.
