Helper methods for Yaml navigation in vim

My Yaml helper


This plugin is not maintained anymore.


This is a plugin that adds some methods for traversing Yaml files:

  • Getting the full path to the current element ( :YamlGetFullPath ),
  • Moving to an element, given the path ( :YamlGoToKey )

It also has a command for moving to the parent node ( :YamlGoToParent ), but vim-indentwise is a lot better for this.

By default, :YamlGetFullPath does not include the root node since I developed it for Rails i18n, where the root node is always the locale name. If you want to always display and copy root when using :YamlGetFullPath, add this to your .vimrc:

let g:vim_yaml_helper#always_get_root = 1

To enable auto display of path to node under cursor, add this to your .vimrc:

let g:vim_yaml_helper#auto_display_path = 1


The plugin uses the vim-vspec plugin for testing. Add it to your vim bundle (for Vundle, Plugin 'kana/vim-vspec').

Then install a recent Ruby (I use 2.5.5) and install the required gems:

$ gem install bundler
$ bundle install --path vendor/bundle

You should now be able to run

bundle exec rake

to run the tests.
