ymlref: load Yaml documents with possibility to resolve references.
ymlref is a library that allows you to load Yaml documents and resolve JSON-pointer references inside them.
import ymlref DOCUMENT = """ authors: shakespear: first_name: William last_name: Shakespear dostoevsky: first_name: Fyodor last_name: Dostoevsky books: - title: Makbet author: $ref: "#/authors/shakespear" - title: Crime and punishment author: $ref: "#/authors/dostoevsky" """ doc = ymlref.loads(DOCUMENT) print('Books in document: \n') for book in doc['books']: print(book['title']) print('Author: ' + book['author']['first_name'] + ' ' + book['author']['last_name']) print('---')
ymlref provides two functions: load and loads. The first one loads document from file-like object, while the second one loads document from str object.
