Yaml Coding Guidelines

Yaml is (one of the languages) used for configuration in TYPO3.

Directory and File Names

  • Files have the ending .yaml.


  • Use spaces, not tabs

  • Indent with 2 spaces per indent level

  • Use single (' ') for defining string values. Double quotes can be used for quotes inside of quotes:

description: 'This is a "salt" used for various kinds of encryption ...'
