YAML Codec

Codec for serialising and de-serialising YAML data. Supports both array and objects for mapping into resources or collections of resources.

The YAML codec uses the yaml module and uses the compiled C versions of the library if available.


Customising Encoding

Serialisation of Odin resources is handled by a customised yaml.Dumper. Additional data types can be appended to the odin.codecs.yaml_codec.YAML_TYPES dictionary.

Example usage

Loading a resource from a file:

from odin.codecs import yaml_codec

with open('my_resource.yaml') as f:
    resource = yaml_codec.load(f)
