A CLI tool for converting YAML to JSON.

Project description


A command line tool for translating YAML streams to JSON.


pip install y2j


y2j accepts YAML data and writes the equivalent JSON to STDOUT. The YAML may be read from a named file, or from STDIN.


  • -c, --compressed: Print with no superfluous whitespace.
  • -p, --pretty: Pretty-print the JSON output

The following examples are based on the contents of example.yml:

    - Is easy to use
    - Is neat

Reading from a file

$ y2j -p example.yml

  "y2j": [
    "Is easy to use",
    "Is neat"

Reading from STDIN

$ cat example.yml | y2j -p

  "y2j": [
    "Is easy to use",
    "Is neat"
