What would you like to do?
Edit YAML in VIM by converting to EDN
augroup YAML
au!
au BufReadPost *.yaml %!yaml2edn
au BufReadPost *.yaml set ft=clojure
au BufWritePre *.yaml %!edn2yaml
au BufWritePost *.yaml %!yaml2edn
au BufWritePost *.yaml set nomod
augroup END

So you want to edit yaml in a structured way?

  • First, install lumo and js-yaml globally and set your NODE_PATH:

    yarn global add lumo-cljs js-yaml
    export NODE_PATH=~/.config/yarn/global/node_modules
    
  • Put yaml2edn and edn2yaml in your path.

    chmod a+x edn2yaml yaml2edn
    sudo cp yaml2edn edn2yaml /usr/local/bin/
    
  • Append .vimrc_local to your .vimrc_local if you have one, or copy it to your homedir:

    [[ -f ~/.vimrc_local ]] && cat .vimrc_local >> ~/.vimrc_local || cp .vimrc_local ~/
    

vim bla.yaml and experience editing data in a structural way. No t-square required.

#!/usr/bin/env lumo
(ns edn2yaml.core
(:require
[cljs.pprint :refer [pprint]]
[cljs.reader :refer [read-string]]))
(def yaml (js/require "js-yaml"))
(js/require "process")
(.setEncoding js/process.stdin "utf8")
(.on js/process.stdin "data"
(fn [data]
(println (.safeDump yaml (clj->js (read-string data))))))
