Discussion on: Which YAML style do you prefer?

Hmmm -- YAML preserves the ordering of maps, so you could get away with the first, but it seems to me that anything where you're literally calling things "first," "second," "third," etc. implies a list. Especially if you might later end up having to parse it into JSON or into programming languages where dicts aren't ordered.

But that's mostly if you think your numbers will stretch beyond, say, 10.

If you know it's more like "primary" and "backup," you could probably get away with either. What do your teammates like?

Also, you might want to add a "discuss" tag to this.

Thanks for your comment!

The workflows are not actually ordered. My bad for using “first” and “second”, it brings confusion to the discussion. I will edit now.

They prefer the map version but I want to make sure it’s the best ;)

Tag added. Thanks for the suggestion.
