I'm not sure if this is just something on localhost, or a Views bug, or a ConfigEntity bug, but filing it nonetheless.

I was testing something out with Views module which is the only thing I could find that extended ConfigEntity. I created a view, saved it, expected to see it in my sites/default/files/config/JKHSDKSD directory and did not.

EclipseGc suggested I check config_cache, and the various view* keys *were* in there. #1790610: [META] Ensure the Configuration and ConfigEntity systems fully support Views CRUD and status operations is still an open issue, so I don't know that this has really been run through the paces yet.

So, bottom line, something is funny. If someone else could test this to see if they see the same thing, that'd be great. Ideally, with a different type of ConfigEntity (but we don't seem to have any in core yet).

I went to http://d8/admin/structure/views/add
I typed in qwer as a name
I hit save

$ ls ~/www/d8/sites/default/files/config/active_z8rpSypey6P090CtjZU5qNQj_52x3th57E2TeiywyTU

Are you sure you didn't look in sites/default/files/config/staging_*? It should be active_*
