This is a package candidate release! Here you can preview how this package release will appear once published to the main package index (which can be accomplished via the 'maintain' link below).

[maintain] [Publish]

This library exposes functions for encoding any Aeson value as YAML. There is also support for encoding multiple values into YAML "documents".

This library is pure Haskell, and does not depend on C FFI with libyaml. It is also licensed under the BSD3 license.

Readme for aeson-yaml-

[back to package description]


BSD3-licensed library to encode any Aeson value as YAML, without a dependency on an external YAML library like yaml (libyaml C FFI) or HsYaml (GPL).


import qualified Data.Aeson.Yaml as Aeson.Yaml

Aeson.Yaml.encode :: ToJSON a => a -> LazyByteString

-- To encode multiple values, separated by '---' (YAML documents),
-- use `encodeDocuments`.
Aeson.Yaml.encodeDocuments :: ToJSON a => [a] -> LazyByteString

-- To encode values of different types, use `toJSON` from `Data.Aeson`
-- like so:
encodeDocuments [toJSON x, toJSON y, toJSON z]

See bin/JsonToYaml.hs for a simple command-line application using this library.
