I'm happy to announce the first public open source python
release "0.2" of YAML Ain't Markup Language (tm). The primary
author of this release is Steve Howell.
YAML(tm) (rhymes with "camel") is a straightforward machine
parsable data serialization format designed for human readability
and interaction with scripting languages such as Perl and Python.
YAML is optimized for data serialization, configuration settings,
log files, Internet messaging and filtering. YAML(tm) is a balance
of the following design goals:
- YAML documents are very readable by humans.
- YAML interacts well with scripting languages.
- YAML uses host languages' native data structures.
- YAML has a consistent information model.
- YAML enables stream-based processing.
- YAML is expressive and extensible.
- YAML is easy to implement.
More information about YAML can be found at http://yaml.org
including the specification at http://yaml.org/spec/
any feedback you may have would be very welcome.
This release of the parser/emitter doesn't handle in-line
collections, nor does it handle typing well; bugs are to be
