[Index] [Quick Jump]



don't build the examples


don't install the yaml2json or json2yaml executables


Don't enable unicode output. Instead, unicode characters will be escaped.


Use the system-wide libyaml instead of the bundled copy


Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info

Build Status Build status

Provides support for parsing and emitting Yaml documents.

This package includes the full libyaml C library version 0.2.1 by Kirill Simonov in the package so you don't need to worry about any non-Haskell dependencies.

The package is broken down into two primary modules. Data.Yaml provides a high-level interface based around the JSON datatypes provided by the aeson package. Text.Libyaml provides a lower-level, streaming interface. For most users, Data.Yaml is recommended.


Usage examples can be found in the Data.Yaml documentation or in the examples directory.

Additional modules

  • Data.Yaml.Include supports adding !include directives to your YAML files.
  • Data.Yaml.Builder and Data.Yaml.Parser allow more fine-grained control of parsing an rendering, as opposed to just using the aeson typeclass and datatype system for parsing and rendering.
  • Data.Yaml.Aeson is currently a re-export of Data.Yaml to explicitly choose to use the aeson-compatible API.
