circleci/clj-yaml provides YAML encoding and decoding for Clojure via the snakeyaml Java library.

CircleCI Status

(This is a maintained fork of the original).


(require '[clj-yaml.core :as yaml])

  [{:name "John Smith", :age 33}
   {:name "Mary Smith", :age 27}])
"- {name: John Smith, age: 33}\n- {name: Mary Smith, age: 27}\n"

(yaml/parse-string "
- {name: John Smith, age: 33}
- name: Mary Smith
  age: 27
=> ({:name "John Smith", :age 33}
    {:name "Mary Smith", :age 27})

By default, keys are converted to clojure keywords. To prevent this, add :keywords false parameters to the parse-string function:

(yaml/parse-string "
- {name: John Smith}
" :keywords false)


circleci/clj-yaml is available as a Maven artifact from Clojars.
