At this time (v 1.14.1), there is no easy way to add a bundle of config files to a site at one time (let's call it a feature recipe). You can import all the config files or you can import them one at a time. However, it would be really nice if I could export a batch of config files that together make up a feature recipe for something like a FAQ.
A simple FAQ feature recipe, might include the following .json files (a simple example).
Any ideas on how I could import this feature recipe all at once?
NOTE: If importing them one at a time, it's problematic, because you have to be careful to import them in the right order. You can not import the view.faq.json file before you import the node.typle.faq.json file.

One solution to this problem is to:
I tested this and it first it did not work for me. The problem appeared to be that in creating the tar.gz file, I was compressing the config directory itself. You can not include the config directory in your tar.gz file.
I found this command to help me ONLY compress and bundle the config files without their parent directory.
Using this, I was able to follow the four steps listed above to import a "feature recipe."
Hopefully, we can improve this process in the future.
If anyone has a better way of doing this, before we get "recipes" in core, let me know.
