=head1 NAME

Dancer::Serializer::YAML - serializer for handling YAML data

=head1 VERSION

version 1.3513

=head1 SYNOPSIS

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This class is an interface between Dancer's serializer engine abstraction layer
and the L<YAML> (or L<YAML::XS>) module.

In order to use this engine, use the template setting:

    serializer: YAML

This can be done in your config.yml file or directly in your app code with the
B<set> keyword. This serializer will also be used when the serializer is set
to B<mutable> and the correct Accept headers are supplied.

By default, the module L<YAML> will be used to serialize/deserialize data and
the application configuration files. This can be changed via the
configuration:

    engines:
        YAML:
            module: YAML::XS

Note that if you want all configuration files to be read using C<YAML::XS>, 
that configuration has to be set via application code:

   config->{engines}{YAML}{module} = 'YAML::XS';

=head1 METHODS

=head2 serialize

Serialize a data structure to a YAML structure.

=head2 deserialize

Deserialize a YAML structure to a data structure

=head2 content_type

Return 'text/x-yaml'
