YAML loader for PyYAML that allow to keep keys order.

Project description

This is a loader for PyYAML allowing to keep items order when loading a file. In some rare cases, it may be desired to keep the order of items when loading the YAML file. For example, this is the case of the clg module (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/clg) that generate a command-line from a dictionnary. When a YAML file is used, and in a purely esthetic purpose, it could be nice to keep order of the items.

The loader is based on stackoverflow topic: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5121931/in-python-how-can-you-load-yaml-mappings-as-ordereddicts

To install it

$ pip install yamlordereddictloader

To use it

import yaml
