.NET ft. Yaml


    Developers often encounter application configuration problems, usually XML is used for these purposes, in this article I want to draw attention to a more friendly markup language.
    YAML (YAML Ain't Markup Language) - a language (exists since 2001) for data serialization, focused on reading and editing by a person of typical data structures. The language, as you might guess, is cross-platform. Known, for the most part, for use in Ruby On Rails as a configuration tool. More details in Russian here: http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yaml

    YAML example

    YAML: YAML is not a markup language
    What it is: YAML is a human-oriented data serialization standard for all programming languages

    You can use this language on .NET, for this there are:
