Installation

You can install this module from Yarn:
yarn add node-yaml js-yaml

Or using NPM:
npm install node-yaml js-yaml

Usage

  1. Let's read some file from given path using node-yaml:

import {read} from "node-yaml"

read("path/to/file.yaml")
  .then(res => console.log("File content:\n\n%s", JSON.stringify(res, null, 2)))
  .catch(err => console.error("Error while reading file:\n\n%s", String(err)))

  1. Both read and readSync methods allows to omit file extension:

import {readSync} from "node-yaml"

// Will read the content from given path, but also resolve file extension
// Note that if you have 2 files with the same name,
// the first matched will be read.
readSync("path/to/file")
