You can see the user guide to help you to use this YAML to JSON converter tool.



Converter User Guide

This YAML/JSON converter is easy to use, just fill the YAML or JSON editor according to the data to be converted, and the conversion is done automatically!

To convert YAML data:

  • Drag and drop your YAML file or copy / paste your YAML directly into the "YAML" editor above.
  • As soon as the editor detects a valid YAML, it displays the result.
  • In order to download the results you must click on "Download" button.
  • You can also copy the result to the clipboard by clicking on the button "Copy to clipboard".

To convert JSON data: It's analogous to the YAML conversion.

To parse YAML: Just fill in the YAML editor, your YAML data will be automatically parsed and analyzed. A error message will be displayed if there is an error in your data.

About YAML

YAML Ain't Markup Language (YAML) is a human-readable data serialization language. This format is useful for configuration files. It can also be used in many applications for other use cases.

YAML has a minimal syntax and it is often more readable than XML. It is useful in case of configuration file.

YAML natively encodes scalars (string, int, ...), and also array.

Many programming languages include code to read and write YAML data (C/C++, Python, Java, PHP, JavaScript, ...).

About JSON to YAML Converter

It is a free online tool that allows you to convert YAML / JSON data. This utility runs directly in your browser (Your files are not sent to the server).

YAML and JSON files can be used as a configuration file. It may therefore be necessary to convert a configuration file if its format changes. This can of course be used in other cases!

This utility uses js-yaml library. It can be use in NodeJS or directly in a browser :)
