Yaml Coding Guidelines¶
Yaml is (one of the languages) used for configuration in TYPO3.
Directory and File Names¶
Files have the ending
Use spaces, not tabs
Indent with 2 spaces per indent level
Favor single-quoted strings (' ') over double-quoted or multi-line strings where possible
Double quoted strings should only be used when more complex escape characters are required. String values with line breaks should use multi-line block strings in YAML.
The quotes on a trivial string value (a single word or similar) may be omitted.
trivial: aValue simple: 'This is a "salt" used for various kinds of encryption ...' complex: "This string has unicode escaped characters, like \x0d\x0a" multi: | This is a multi-line string. Line breaks are preserved in this value. It's good for including <em>HTML snippets</em>.
