what ever happened to the day of standard config files. Everything is going yaml and I cannot express enough how much I don't like yaml files and that seems to be all what I deal with daily.

@omnipotens How bad is it? I thought they were just key/value pairs ??

@BradleySmall I just spent 45 minutes because I cut and pasted a config from a website and do to some space/tab formatting the file was not working properly for some reason no idea just a but frustrated now.

@omnipotens like yamllint or code beautifier? Crap like that can save you a whole lotta headache, especially with spacial indentation is syntactical :S


@BradleySmall It was a bare install of ubuntu not internet connected so basic vi

@omnipotens should be straight forward then, that has to be frustrating.
