๐Ÿ“‘ YAML for questers

YAML Syntax๐Ÿ”—

Before we can start you need to understand the fundamentals of YAML. You have no idea what that is? Well YAML is the format most plugins store their config data in.

Its key:value based which means that you will always have to name the thing that you write down before you actually write it down. Let me show you an example:

YAML Key:Value

key: "value"
name: "your thing"

These keys and values can also be nested into each other by indenting them with a few spaces:

Nested YAML

outerName:
  innerName: "innerValue"
  anotherInnerName: "BetonQuest is great!"

YAML also cares a lot about spaces and tabs! The rules are pretty complicated. It's best not to use tabs in your YAML files at all. Use spaces instead.
