Convert YAML to JSON using Python (Python 3 )

Convert YAML to JSON using Python

If you need to convert YAML to JSON, you can simply parse the YAML as we did above. In the next step, you can use the JSON module to convert the object to JSON.

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

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

This example code is from the Python YAML tutorial at Python Land.
