This tool expands property references in YAML files.

Installation

composer require grasmash/yaml-expander

Example usage:

Example dune.yml:

type: book
book:
  title: Dune
  author: Frank Herbert
  copyright: ${book.author} 1965
  protaganist: ${characters.0.name}
  media:
    - hardcover
characters:
  - name: Paul Atreides
    occupation: Kwisatz Haderach
    aliases:
      - Usul
      - Muad'Dib
      - The Preacher
  - name: Duncan Idaho
    occupation: Swordmaster
summary: ${book.title} by ${book.author}
product-name: ${${type}.title}

Property references use dot notation to indicate array keys, and must be wrapped in ${}.

Expansion logic:

<?php

// Parse a yaml string directly, expanding internal property references.
$yaml_string = file_get_contents("dune.yml");
$expanded = \Grasmash\YamlExpander\Expander::parse($yaml_string);
print_r($expanded);

// Parse an array, expanding internal property references.
$array = \Symfony\Component\Yaml\Yaml::parse(file_get_contents("dune.yml"));
$expanded = \Grasmash\YamlExpander\Expander::expandArrayProperties($array);
print_r($expanded);

// Parse an array, expanding references using both internal and supplementary values.
$array = \Symfony\Component\Yaml\Yaml::parse(file_get_contents("dune.yml"));
$reference_properties = ['book' => ['publication-year' => 1965]];
$expanded = \Grasmash\YamlExpander\Expander::expandArrayProperties($array, $reference_properties);
print_r($expanded);

Resultant array:

<?php

array (
  'type' => 'book',
  'book' => 
  array (
    'title' => 'Dune',
    'author' => 'Frank Herbert',
    'copyright' => 'Frank Herbert 1965',
    'protaganist' => 'Paul Atreides',
    'media' => 
    array (
      0 => 'hardcover',
    ),
  ),
  'characters' => 
  array (
    0 => 
    array (
      'name' => 'Paul Atreides',
      'occupation' => 'Kwisatz Haderach',
      'aliases' => 
      array (
        0 => 'Usul',
        1 => 'Muad\'Dib',
        2 => 'The Preacher',
      ),
    ),
    1 => 
    array (
      'name' => 'Duncan Idaho',
      'occupation' => 'Swordmaster',
    ),
  ),
  'summary' => 'Dune by Frank Herbert',
);
