class Yaml

Yaml offers convenience methods to load and dump YAML.

Methods

static array parse(string $input, bool $exceptionOnInvalidType = false, bool $objectSupport = false)

Parses YAML into a PHP array.

static string dump(array $array, int $inline = 2, int $indent = 4, bool $exceptionOnInvalidType = false, bool $objectSupport = false)

Dumps a PHP array to a YAML string.

Details

at line 53
static public array parse(string $input, bool $exceptionOnInvalidType = false, bool $objectSupport = false)

Parses YAML into a PHP array.

The parse method, when supplied with a YAML stream (string or file), will do its best to convert YAML in a file into a PHP array.

Usage: $array = Yaml::parse(filegetcontents('config.yml')); print_r($array);

As this method accepts both plain strings and file names as an input, you must validate the input before calling this method. Passing a file as an input is a deprecated feature and will be removed in 3.0.

Parameters

string $input Path to a YAML file or a string containing YAML
bool $exceptionOnInvalidType True if an exception must be thrown on invalid types false otherwise
bool $objectSupport True if object support is enabled, false otherwise

Return Value

array The YAML converted to a PHP array

Exceptions

ParseException If the YAML is not valid

bool $exceptionOnInvalidType true if an exception must be thrown on invalid types (a PHP resource or object), false otherwise
