  4. Why I YAML


Eemeli Aro at React Finland 2018

I'm writing my own YAML library, because none of the existing ones allowed me to manage comments within YAML files. Apparently this is not a thing one should do, as "The YAML spec is larger than the XML and XML Namespaces specs combined" and "No one in their right mind would want to write a parser for it." But, well, here we are. Let me explain where "here" is, the route I took, and why any of this matters.
