format file yml

What is a yml file and how do I open a yml file?

YAML stands for YAML Ain't Markup Language, and this file format technology is used in documents. These documents are saved in plain text format and are appended with the .yml extension. Efficient data serialization was the main objective of the developers of the .yml format, since it enables users to create .yml files with content independent from any particular markup language. These .yml files can also be read by any text editor developed for creating, opening and editing plain text files, be it text editing software for Microsoft Windows-based systems like Microsoft Notepad and Microsoft WordPad, or for Mac platforms like Apple TextEdit software. YAML libraries can also be used to integrate the YML format into several programming languages. These programming languages can be Ruby, C/C++, Python, Perl, PHP, Java, Javascript, AJAX, C# and so on. For instance, a file with the .yml extension can store content and serve as a database file implemented with RoR (Ruby on Rails) programming functionalities, and this database file can be used for storing information about network connections each time users try to connect to a network database.
