NAME

yamltk - yaml toolkit merges yaml and transforms bash variables to yaml

USAGE

yamltk [OPTION].. PATH..

   -c       check source
   -h       help
   -v       version
   -x       use filename extensions as special
   -m       output is xml

USAGE EXAMPLES

Merge ..
   yamltk ./*yml > merged.yml
Check that these files have proper syntax
   yamltk -c ./*yml
Merge in a special kind of way:
   # cat houses.var
   These are all houses.
   They are really cool houses.
   # cat notes.yml
   ---
   NAME: A great place to start
   DESCRIPTION: I am without a doubt, descriptive.

   # yamltk -x houses.var notes.yml
   ---
   DESCRIPTION: 'I am without a doubt, descriptive.'
   NAME: A great place to start
   houses: |-
     These are all houses.
     They are really cool houses.

SPECIAL EXTENSIONS

If you want to treat extensions as special, use the -x option flag.

If you use these, the filenames dictate how the data is merged.

The data is merged into a master hash. If the filename to merge from has the string 'var', the file data is inserted into the master hash with the key 'houses' for a filename of 'houses.var'

   yamltk houses.var

If the data is yaml, it will be inserted- if it is not yaml, it is inserted as scalar.

This is primarily being used to create data for use with tmpltk

CAVEATS

Being used in production- but still in alpha. Please contact the AUTHOR for any suggestions, etc.

TODO

This should take in bash variables and be able to turn into YAML. For example, if the input is 'set' putput, should be able to make that into yaml output.
