Extract YAML frontmatter from files and strings.

Project description

frontmatter

A simple Python package for parsing YAML Frontmatter from a text file or string. Written for Python 3, but should also work for Python 2.7.

Usage

from frontmatter import Frontmatter

# assuming 'testfile.md' exists
post = Frontmatter.read_file('testfile.md')

print(post['attributes'], "\n")  # Dictionary
print(post['body'], "\n")        # String
print(post['frontmatter'])       # String

The output would be:

{'foo': 'bar', 'num': 3, 'list': ['first', 'second', 'third']}

This is the actual post content
This is a second line

foo: bar
num: 3
list:
- first
- second
- third

In the above example, the contents of testfile.md is:

---
foo: bar
num: 3
list:
- first
- second
- third
---

This is the actual post content
This is a second line
