yae - YAML aliases expander
yae is a YAML aliases expander, written by Go.
When refactoring a long YAML using anchor/alias, I created it to make sure that the original YAML and the refactored YAML are identical.
By comparing the original YAML with the refactored YAML output from the
yae command with
diff, you can verify that the contents of YAML have not changed.
$ diff <(yae original.yaml) <(yae refactored.yaml)
yae command can change the indentation of the list, the sequence of keys, and other parts that are not relevant to the meaning of YAML, the original YAML uses this command to ensure that the diff command does not cause differences in formatting.

You can install using
go get -u github.com/shin1x1/yae
yae command with the YAML file path that you want to expand alias as an argument.
$ cat original.yaml --- anchors: items: - &book # anchor name: book price: 100 stocks: - *book # alias - <<: *book # alias with overwrite key price: 200 $ yae src.yaml anchors: items: - name: book price: 100 stocks: - name: book price: 100 - name: book price: 200
