The orbits and dynamics of exoplanet systems can unveil their tales of formation, migration, star-planet interactions, and atmospheric properties. Kepler, TESS, and soon PLATO deliver an unprecedented wealth of new photometric data on this matter, while ground-based follow-up and radial velocity instruments add valuable insights. Here, I will present how we can unite and untangle all this data on exoplanets' orbits and dynamics using allesfitter. This open-source python software enables flexible and robust inference of stars and exoplanets from photometric and radial velocity data. Allesfitter offers a rich selection of orbital and transit/eclipse models, accommodating multiple exoplanets, multi-star systems, transit-timing variations, and phase curves. It can also help mitigate and/or study stellar variability, starspots, and stellar flares. I will highlight some of allesfitter's science output on examples of exoplanet dynamics (e.g., TOI-270 and TOI-216) and orbital phase curves (e.g., WASP-18 and WASP-121). With TESS' extended mission and PLATO on the horizon, a wealth of new data soon face us, allowing TTV and phase curve studies of dozens of such systems over many years.
