Lists are used to represent an ordered collection of items. Lists are written using a hyphen “-” followed by a space, and each item in the list is separated by a new line. Here is an example of a YAML list:

  - apple
  - banana
  - cherry

In this example, “fruits” is the key and the list contains three items: “apple”, “banana”, and “cherry”. The items are each written on a new line and indented by two spaces.

Lists can also contain items of different types, such as strings, numbers, and booleans. Here is an example of a mixed-type list:

  - apple
  - 123
  - true

In this example, the list contains a string, an integer, and a boolean value.

Lists can also be nested within other data structures, such as dictionaries. Here is an example of a nested list:

  - name: John
    age: 30
      - reading
      - hiking
  - name: Jane
    age: 25
      - cooking
      - painting

In this example, the “people” key is associated with a list of two dictionaries, each representing a person. The “hobbies” key in each dictionary is associated with a nested list of hobbies.
