Convert JSON to YAML using Python (Python 3)

Convert JSON to YAML using Python

If you need to convert JSON to YAML, you can simply parse the JSON with the built-in JSON library. In the next step, you can use the PyYAML module to convert the object to YAML.

In this example, we open a JSON-based configuration file, parse it with the json library, and then write it to a YAML file with the PyYAML module.

Finally, I added a load and print to prove everything worked.
