Inlining yaml


#1

I want to be able to inline certain parts of yaml output that are
embedded within a structure. Here’s the approach I’m taking – does
it look reasonable? Can anyone recommend a better approach? -dan

require ‘yaml’
class Object
def inline!
class << self; def to_yaml_style; :inline; end; end
self
end
end

ary = %w[a b c]
ary.inline!
other = %w[a b c]

puts ({ ‘ary’ => ary, ‘other’ => other }).to_yaml

ary: [a, b, c]
other:

  • a
  • b
  • c
