Jina YAML Syntax Reference

Jina configurations use YAML syntax, and must have either a .yml or .yaml file extension. If you’re new to YAML and want to learn more, see Learn YAML in five minutes.

Note

In many Jina YAML config files, you often see !Tag such as !Flow, !MyEncoder. Note that !Tag is valid YAML 1.0 syntax, it represents a language-specific serialization and object, e.g. !ruby/symbol, !python/list. Tags such as !Flow have been registered inside the Jina YAML parser, and therefore they are readable. However, if you copy-paste this YAML file into an arbitrary online YAML validator, it will most likely report it as invalid. The reason is that those tags aren’t registered at those online YAML validator.
