Cortex developer tools allow users to export org configurations from one organization and import them to another organization. These tools will also allow you to create a git-mergeable format for org configuration. As such, the exports will be minimalistic in nature, having only the properties required to rebuild during import. The developer tools consist of cortex routes, an npm module (which includes a command interface) and a reference implementation Atom plugin that makes use of the npm module. Documentation for installation and usage can be found here: https://github.com/Medable/mdctl.
