Just to be sure that it's not one of your config files causing the traceback, or psych itself.

I have exactly the same problem but couldn't find out how to change the YAML default parser. The thread from SO looks specific to RoR. Where is config/boot.rb in the case of Octopress?

@irae irae commented Aug 25, 2011

As I understand, this is a problem inside one of the gems. Since the purpose of octopress is an easier way to use jekyll, I think this issue should be reopened. I don't have the necessary skill do dig into the problem and propose a patch to the specific gem. In the stack overflow thread some comment even mention this to be a problem in bundler.

Can someone change the Gemfile or something in a way that this works out of the box, as expected?

It's now working for me properly. In my case it was a problem coming from ZSH syntax, I was not escaping the square brackets properly when creating a new blog post with rake. The syntax error could be more informative though.

@irae irae commented Aug 25, 2011

Now I understand what was going on. Each begin of a post is a little YAML. This was not clear to me. I wasn't creating the post with the commandline, I was trying to import from tumblr. The file was entirely alright and in UTF-8. It was breaking with an "em dash" (—), witch in fixed width fonts is almost the same as "en dash" (–) or an hyphen (-). That's why I wasn't able to find the problem.

I'll dig into this further later, but may be it's a new issue entirely. Thanks for pointing that out, @jdnavarro.

i found that when I was initially editing the ymf config file I didn't have a space after the ':' this fixes the parsing error

fails:

ok:
