EDIT from 2019: Hi folks. I wrote this gist for myself and some friends, and it seems like it's gotten posted somewhere that's generated some (ahem, heated) discussion.
The whitespace was correct when it was posted, and since then GitHub changed how it formats (thank you @anzdaddy for suggesting a formatting workaround) honestly this is a random throwaway gist from 2015, and someone more knowledgable about this comparison should just write a proper blog post about it. If you comment here I'll hopefully see it and stick a link to it up here. Cheers. @oconnor663
<pre> tags. Look at the raw text if you care about this. I'm sure someone could tell me how to fix it, but
Here's the canonical TOML example from the TOML README, and a YAML version of the same. Which looks nicer?
