    A tool like yamllint online (don't send any confidential data to it)/offline might help you in writing syntactically correct YAML.

    TOML also has a few restrictions, such as not supporting mixed-type arrays like [1, "hello", true], or arrays at the root of the data. JSON can represent any TOML value (as far as I know), but TOML cannot represent any JSON value.

    At my company we use YAML a lot for table-driven tests (e.g. [1]), and this not only means lots of nested arrays, but also having to represent pure data (i.e. the expected output of a test), which requires a format that supports encoding arbitrary data structures.
