Parse yaml file
It is a frequent practice to use yaml files for configuring Python applications. Though, the same is true for applications written in other programming languages. The code snippet below allows to parse a configuration file in yaml format and get values as a dictionary.
import yaml def parse_configuration_file(file: str) -> dict: with open(file) as f: data = yaml.load(f, yaml.FullLoader) return data configuration = parse_configuration_file("configuration.yaml")
In order for this snippet to work, the
PyYAML package must be installed.
