Convert YAML data to Lua object

markup.loadYaml(fileName)

Load YAML file from VFS to Lua object.

Type markup

Field(s)

markup.decodeYaml(inputData)

Convert YAML data to Lua object

Parameter

  • #string inputData : Data to decode. It has such limitations:

    1. YAML format of version 1.2 is used.
    2. Map keys should be scalar values (strings, booleans, numbers).
    3. YAML tag system is not supported.
    4. If scalar is quoted, it is treated like a string. Othewise type deduction works according to YAML 1.2 Core Schema.
    5. Circular dependencies between YAML nodes are not allowed.
    6. Lua 5.1 does not have integer numbers - all numeric scalars use a #number type (which use a floating point).
    7. Integer scalars numbers values are limited by the "int" range. Use floating point notation for larger number in YAML files.

Return value

#any: Lua object (can be table or scalar value).

Usage:

local result = markup.decodeYaml('{ "x": 1 }');
-- prints 1
print(result["x"])
markup.loadYaml(fileName)

Load YAML file from VFS to Lua object.

Conventions are the same as in markup.decodeYaml.

Parameter

  • #string fileName : YAML file path in VFS.

Return value

#any: Lua object (can be table or scalar value).

Usage:

-- file contains '{ "x": 1 }' data
local result = markup.loadYaml('test.yaml');
-- prints 1
print(result["x"])
