how to place YAML inside a YAML document
I am working with Rails fixtures for testing my rails application. It is all good except one of my database columns is supposed to hold YAML content. But, I am sure how to put the YAML markup I want to load into my database inside the YAML file. Here is an example:
mvnforum: name: mvnforum abstraction_type: SVN url: src: test username: admin #is this possible? sourcepath: mvnforum/src/ webroot: codesecure_project: mvnforum
If it is impossible to have YAML inside a YAML file what would be the best why to load this into a database for testing?
If you want to put YAML code inside a YAML document, you need to treat it like a string:
url: "src: test username: admin"
If you need a multiline string, you can do
mvnforum: name: mvnforum abstraction_type: SVN url: " src: test\n username: admin\n " sourcepath: mvnforum/src/ webroot: codesecure_project: mvnforum
