Strings are used to represent text values. Strings can be written with or without quotes, and both single and double quotes are accepted. Here is an example of a YAML string:
In this example, “name” is the key and “John” is the string value associated with it.
Strings can also contain special characters and escape sequences. Here is an example of a string with a newline character:
In this example, the “\n” sequence represents a newline character, which will be displayed as a line break when the string is rendered.
Strings can also be written with double quotes, which allows for more escape sequences. Here is an example:
greeting: "Hello, \"World\"!"
In this example, the string value contains double quotes around the word “World”. To include the double quotes in the string, they are escaped using a backslash “”.
Multi-line strings are also supported in YAML using the “|” character. Here is an example:
message: | This is a multi-line string in YAML.
