   * I don't like yaml for complex structures. I find it harder to read than json and syntax errors are very frequent and occur a great waste of time. The data structures are described by (space) indentation I found brittle. Worst : different indentation forms can be both valid but mean different things (like a map of map or one more key/value for the current map). Validators exist but AFAIK, formatters doesn'​t. However, yaml comes with fine features like comments or multi-documents. ​   * I don't like yaml for complex structures.
