Definitions for YAML
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word YAML
A retronym for YAML Ain't Markup Language that meant originally Yet Another Markup Language
YAML is a human-readable data serialization format that takes concepts from programming languages such as C, Perl, and Python, and ideas from XML and the data format of electronic mail. YAML was first proposed by Clark Evans in 2001, who designed it together with Ingy döt Net and Oren Ben-Kiki. It is available for several programming languages. YAML is a recursive acronym for "YAML Ain't Markup Language". Early in its development, YAML was said to mean "Yet Another Markup Language", but it was then reinterpreted to distinguish its purpose as data-oriented, rather than document markup.
