When I first saw an email from Dirk Jesse about YAML, I was instantly in Ruby mode. Then as I read I realised that he was talking about a totally different YAML, his own CSS framework “Yet Another Multicolumn Layout” (compareble to YUI Grids or blueprint) that is designed
for creating flexible float-based multicolumn css-layouts. YAML is
released under creative commons licence.
Dirk told us:
The framework is focussed on flexible layouts and offers column and/or
grid based design elements for flexible, elastic or fixed layouts. YAML
has grown over two and a half years now. Since YAML wasn’t planned to
become a framework, things grew slowly and only with a german
documentenation. Thats I think, is the main reason, why it is almost
unknown outside Germany. This changed with the arival of YAML v3.0 july’07.
YAML is very flexible, comes with a bilingual documentation (PDF, > 100
pages) and – my lastest baby – a builder, that allows visual configuration of the basic layout elements.
The building is a very nice Ajax app in its own right:
