SharpYaml Build Status NuGet

SharpYaml is a .NET library that provides a YAML parser and serialization engine for .NET objects, compatible with CoreCLR.

NOTICE:

This project is no longer actively maintained since 2016, but it's still accepting Pull-Requests.

Small improvements and fixes are welcome, but big refactoring won't likely be.

Please, open an issue in case you are not sure about the changes you want to bring before working on a PR.

Usage

var serializer = new Serializer();
var text = serializer.Serialize(new { List = new List<int>() { 1, 2, 3 }, Name = "Hello", Value = "World!" });
Console.WriteLine(text);

Output:

List:
  - 1
  - 2
  - 3
Name: Hello
Value: World!

Features

SharpYaml is a fork of YamlDotNet and is adding the following features:

  • Supports for .netstandard2.0
  • Memory allocation and GC pressure improved
  • Completely rewritten serialization/deserialization engine
  • A single interface IYamlSerializable for implementing custom serializers, along IYamlSerializableFactory to allow dynamic creation of serializers. Registration can be done through SerializerSettings.RegisterSerializer and SerializerSettings.RegisterSerializerFactory
    • Can inherit from ScalarSerializerBase to provide custom serialization to/from a Yaml scalar
  • Supports for custom collection that contains user properties to serialize along the collection.
  • Supports for Yaml 1.2 schemas
  • A centralized type system through ITypeDescriptor and IMemberDescriptor
  • Highly configurable serialization using SerializerSettings (see usage)
    • Add supports to register custom attributes on external objects (objects that you can't modify) by using SerializerSettings.Register(memberInfo, attribute)
    • Several options and settings: EmitAlias, IndentLess, SortKeyForMapping, EmitJsonComptible, EmitCapacityForList, LimitPrimitiveFlowSequence, EmitDefaultValues
    • Add supports for overriding the Yaml style of serialization (block or flow) with SerializerSettings.DefaultStyle and SerializerSettings.DynamicStyleFormat
  • Supports for registering an assembly when discovering types to deserialize through SerializerSettings.RegisterAssembly
  • Supports a IObjectSerializerBackend that allows to hook a global rewriting for all YAML serialization types (scalar, sequence, mapping) when serializing/deserializing to/from a .NET type.
