npm-yaml

YAML support for npm's package.json. Yes, write your dependencies in YAML.

Installation

  1. Install npm-yaml via npm install -g npm-yaml
  2. Set npm-yaml as your npm pre-hook: npm set onload-script npm-yaml

WTF is it doing?

npm-yaml looks for your package.json file and initially converts it to YAML. Afterwards, everytime you run npm install it will convert your package.yml to JSON before installing.

WTF WHY?

Here's why:

  1. No annoying brackets
  2. JSON (in my opinion) is the most ugly Object Notation language ever.
  3. I actually did this because I wanted comments in my package.json. Now I have them in my package.yml. Yay!
