YAML Config File Reader for Unity 3D

This is a page for YAML Config File Reader of Unity 3D. I applied for the Unity 3D store with this package, but it was not accepted. I see, that people are looking for this, so I give it to you with this direct link.

YAML is a human friendly data serialization standard for all programming languages.
http://yaml.org/

This is a package to read this type of file into unity objects. It is in C#, but can be called from Javascript too. (This is why it is in Standard Assets.)
Coding itself is from Antoine Aubry at
http://www.aaubry.net/page/YamlDotNet

It was intergrated into the Unty 3D environment and tested for Android.

Testing

You can test by assigning YamlDotNet2013SepTest_01 and 02 scripts to a game object.

 

Troubleshooting

  • By any problem please first test your YAML file using YAML JS browser.
  • If you compile it for Android, please change .NET settings from .NET subset to .NET 2.0.
  • JSON is a subset of YAML, so you can read JSON files too
  • Config files should be in Resources folder
  • It seems, that this asset is not running in web player because of lack of .NET API support. I am looking for a solution.
