While YAML is nice and convenient for small configuration files, it has many flaws[2], most notably the Norway problem[3] and all it's siblings. Utilizing another language that can be parsed into data is most likely a better idea for whatever usage you have in mind. For example:

  2. https://www.arp242.net/yaml-config.html
