I use YAML for my default config files with tools such as ESLint and Stylelint. I find the syntax a lot more intuitive than JSON and I am less likely to make mistakes with it.

Thank you for making this tutorial, Paula.

Nice! Do you mind sharing a bit more about how you use it? Like which language and do you use a parser?
I'm really curious because I love the syntax, but I don't like the idea of including extra dependencies just for that.

I currently use yaml only when a node js package offers built-in support for it. I stick with json, otherwise. I don't know much about parsers as I've only used babel before and it doesn't support yaml, as far as I know.
