YAML is a human-friendly data serialization standard for all programming languages. YAML is to configuration what markdown is to markup. It’s basically a human-readable structured data format. It is less complicated and ungainly than XML or JSON, but provides similar capabilities. It essentially allows you to provide powerful configuration settings, without having to learn a more complex code type like CSS, JavaScript, and PHP.

CodeLobster IDE has basic built-in support for YAML, and provides syntax highlighting for comfortable work with .yml files.

YAML syntax highlighting

CodeLobster IDE supports YAML syntax highlighting in the Editor to make it easier to read the semantics of the structured content by displaying each type of code in different colors and fonts. This feature helps you to check code for errors, as it highlights mismatched enclosing characters with a different color.


You can configure colors in Tools | Preferences | Editor Colors
