Project description

SYML (Simple YAML-like Markup Language) is a simple markup language with similar structure to YAML, but without all the gewgaws and folderol.

https://travis-ci.org/eykd/syml.svg?branch=master https://coveralls.io/repos/github/eykd/syml/badge.svg?branch=master

Example

Here’s a simple SYML document:

>>> document = """
foo:
  - bar
  - baz
  - blah
    boo

booleans?:
  - yes
  - no
  - true
  - false
  - on
  - off
"""

And the resulting data structure:

>>> import syml
>>> syml.loads(document)
OrderedDict([('foo', ['bar', 'baz', 'blah\nboo']),
             ('booleans?', ['yes', 'no', 'true', 'false', 'on', 'off'])])

All values in SYML are just plain ol’ text. But let’s face it, sometimes you really do want YAML-like booleans:

>>> import syml
>>> syml.loads(document, booleans=True)
OrderedDict([('foo', ['bar', 'baz', 'blah\nboo']),
             ('booleans?', [True, False, True, False, True, False])])
