Is YAML still the preferred way to store structured data in Ruby?

Hi forum!

I just wanted to toss a simple query your way regarding the status of
YAML in the community.

It seems to me that many developers (not necessarily Ruby developers)
are going for json or xml when it comes to store structural data outside
of engine-driven databases these days.
Is the Ruby community moving into any of these camps or will it stick
with YAML for the foreseeable future?

I, myself, prefer YAML, but it seems I’m forced to conclude that it’s
not that common when I start integrating my work with other projects.

Any thoughts?

Kind Regards,
Henrik.

I like YAML because of its low overhead, and because it is easy to read.
Of course it doesn’t fit every case, but when it does, why not using
ist?
