What is YAML? YAML = YAML Aint Markup Language! YAML is great for quickly exporting and importing data to and from your Ruby application. There seem to be many pros and cons on when to use YAML vs. XML. My rule of thumb is to use YAML when everything is controlled by your application. Use XML is you intend to transfer data outside of your application.
