The YAML format whose initials stand for YAML Ain't Markup Language, is a human-readable format used for data serialization and is used to read and write data independently of a specific programming language.
YAML was proposed and designed by Clark Evans together with Ingy dot Net and Oren Ben-Kiki in 2001.
At first, during its development, YAML stood for Yet Another Markup Language, to distinguish its purpose centered on data rather than document markup.
