Supported file formats

Dasel supports the following file formats:

  • json

  • yaml

    • Merge tags/aliases are supported in reads from v2.8.0.

  • csv

  • toml v1.0.0

  • xml

  • - (plain, write-only)

Note that

  • Some format specific features such as comments may not be present in dasel output.

  • Array ordering is not guaranteed. The JSON spec for example doesn't guarantee ordering. As a result dasel cannot either.

  • The plain (-) parser can only be used when writing.
