Independent specification

See original GitHub issue

I wonder if it would make sense to write a complete specification for StrictYAML that does not depend on the YAML specification (as in, you can write a compliant parser without reading that one first), to help it spread to other programming language ecosystems.

There has been discussion in the rust subreddit as to wether YAML’s enormous and ambiguous specification or TOML’s alien syntax was preferable. Rust’s popular (de)serialization framework serde uses structs to define a schema, so StrictYAML would be a great fit.

it would be nice for it to be a repo

Technically, it already is a repo, just not on github ( doesn’t use pull-requests but the more traditional mailing list and patches workflow). That said, I have set up a second repo here.

About the license, I’m just worried that some things may resemble the YAML spec, which explicitly states:

This document may be freely copied, provided it is not modified.

I don’t think including parts of it in another document that doesn’t describe itself as the yaml spec would count as modified. I guess it would really depend on the intent of the document.

In any case I’d like to help any way I can with this. I’d love to see the rust community starting to use strictyaml.
