how easy is yaml to work with in python compared to json

0 votes
I am trying to use some configuration files in my project and have searched several web sites but didn't find the clear answer,

For reference I found below info on another website but if you have some clear views other than this, as python developer what do you choose and why ? Please post,

Yaml and Json are the simplest and most commonly used file formats to store settings/config. PyYaml can be used to parse yaml. Json is already part of python from 2.5. Yaml is a superset of Json. Json will solve most uses cases except multi line strings where escaping is required. Yaml takes care of these cases too.

Hi,

First thing YAML and JSON are not used as a language. You can think in this way that these are the file format. In some cases, you may need YAML and in some cases, you may need JSON. It totally depends on your use case.
