TIL: Fixing YAML

I got tired of manually correcting and prettifying YAML only to run into periodic instances where my cleanup broke configurations. Alas, yamllint tells you what's wrong but doesn't fix problems. I would rather have an easy-to-use CLI tool that does all the work for me.

Thanks to David Winterbottom for the suggestion.

Step 1: Install yamlfix

pip install yamlfix

Step 2: Recursively clean up all the YAML

yamlfix .
