D:YAML is designed to be easy to use while supporting the full feature set of YAML. To start using it in your project, see the Getting Started tutorial.
D:YAML is still a work in progress. Its API is not stable and there might be compatibility breaking changes.
- Easy to use, high level API and detailed debugging messages.
- Detailed API documentation and tutorials.
- Code examples.
- Supports all YAML 1.1 constructs. All examples from the YAML 1.1 specification are parsed correctly.
- Reads from and writes from/to YAML files or in-memory buffers.
- UTF-8, UTF-16 and UTF-32 encodings are supported, both big and little endian (plain ASCII also works as it is a subset of UTF-8).
- Support for both block (Python-like, based on indentation) and flow (JSON-like, based on bracing) constructs.
- Support for YAML anchors and aliases.
- Support for default values in mappings.
- Support for custom tags (data types), and implicit tag resolution for custom scalar tags.
- All tags (data types) described at http://yaml.org/type/ are supported, with
the exception of
tag:yaml.org,2002:yaml, which is used to represent YAML code in YAML.
- Remembers YAML style information between loading and dumping if possible.
- Reuses input memory and uses slices to minimize memory allocations.
- There is no support for recursive data structures. There are no plans to implement this at the moment.
