Reinventing the wheel since 1990


YamlDotNetYamlDotNet is a .NET library for YAML. YamlDotNet provides low level parsing and emitting of YAML as well as a high level object model similar to XmlDocument. A serialization library is also included that allows to read and write objects from and to YAML streams.

What is YAML?

YAML, which stands for "YAML Ain't Markup Language", is described as "a human friendly data serialization standard for all programming languages". Like XML, it allows to represent about any kind of data in a portable, platform-independent format. Unlike XML, it is "human friendly", which means that it is easy for a human to read or produce a valid YAML document.

The YamlDotNet library

The library has now been successfully used in multiple projects and is considered fairly stable.

Where to get it?

The most up-to-date version can always be found in the following NuGet packages:

You can also clone the project on GitHub if you are interested.
