Hi! I like your idea of a new markup language, but hate the idea that you base it on the INI file because I find it ugly. You also end up using a lot of characters that are difficult to type on international keyboards. So I just changes a lot of this stuff to make it easier to type. Have a look if you want ;-)

👍, this is clearly better :)

Beauty often in the eyes of the beholder! Personally I think INI-esque looks good (i.e., in this context, easy to read). Additionally, INI-esque style is very familiar — the meaning of each line is immediately obvious. We should continue in the INI direction, although (independent of TOML itself) I do see some niceness in the format you propose ;)

DouweM commented Feb 25, 2013

@tnm I think this proposal was not meant to be taken seriously ;)

@tallakt Why not create your own minimalistic language inspired by TOML but using the syntax you suggest? Choice is always good!

tallakt commented Feb 25, 2013

Well i was actually serious about this. I did not put too much thought into it though thinking more it could inspire a more easy to type layout and a cleaner look. But it is not my call, i can only thank those who took the time to read it :) as for my own taml ( tallaks markup language) i just have too many projects that i care more about at the moment. I think toml is still interesting though, despite the (in my eyes) ugliness

@tallakt Ah, I guess I misunderstood then. The cd /key syntax for keygroups seemed kind of ridiculous to me.
