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.
