YAML(Yet Ain’t Markup Language) Basics

• For Ansible, nearly every YAML file starts with a list
• Each item in the list is a list of key/value pairs, commonly called a “dictionary”
• All YAML files have to begin with “—” and end with “…
• All members of a list lines must begin with same indentation level starting with “- “

--- # A list of tasty fruits

• A dictionary is represented in a simple key: value form (the colon must be followed by a space)
