HSLYaml library?

Is there a HSLYaml library for Venus? Something like the HSLJson library but for YAML instead?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Gareth,

To my knowledge, HSLJSON and HSLXML are the closest options. I am unaware of any implementations specific to YAML files. I will let you know if I hear otherwise.

Thanks Nick. I wondered if that would be the case. Might look into making my own…

That would be awesome. Wish we could “crowdfund” these small endeavors.


Instead of doing this the hard way in HSL why not write a short python script that converts the yaml to JSON and then push it into VENUS. Let me know if I should give you an example of how to solve this, I think this should be a straightforward 10-liner at max. Actually a perfect example where HSL would be total overkill.

Thanks for your advice, but I disagree, installing python (especially as we would be installing this on regulated machines too) for this would be overkill. Yeah, the python script would be simple, but then I don’t think HSL would be too bad either, considering it could probably be a wrapper around a .dll like HSLJson is. There’s lots of ways the same goal came be achieved, but having a first party library would be preferable (again, especially in GxP world).
