    I have not used emacs and this library for a long time,
    so I recruit maintainers or collaborators for all yaml-mode users.
    If you are interested in maintaining or collaborating with this library,
    please contact me.

    yaml-mode - Simple major mode to edit YAML file for emacs

    Emacs 24.1

    To install, just drop this file into a directory in your
    `load-path' and (optionally) byte-compile it.  To automatically
    handle files ending in '.yml', add something like:

    (require 'yaml-mode)
    (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.yml\\'" . yaml-mode))

    to your .emacs file.

    Unlike python-mode, this mode follows the Emacs convention of not
    binding the ENTER key to `newline-and-indent'.  To get this
    behavior, add the key definition to `yaml-mode-hook':

    (add-hook 'yaml-mode-hook
      '(lambda ()
        (define-key yaml-mode-map "\C-m" 'newline-and-indent)))

    yaml-mode is major mode for emacs.

    You can install yaml-mode typing below.

        % make
        % make install


        % make PREFIX=/your/home/dir
        % make install PREFIX=/your/home/dir

    see SYNOPSIS.
