Ada-TOML: a TOML Parser for Ada


by Pierre-Marie de Rodat
At: FOSDEM 2020
❮p❯The world of generic structured data formats is full of contenders: the mighty XML, the swift JSON, the awesome YAML, ...
Alas, there is no silver bullet: XML is very verbose, JSON is not convenient for humans to write, YAML is known to be hard to parse, and so on.❮/p❯
❮p❯TOML is yet another format whose goal is to be a good configuration language: obvious semantics, convenient to write and easy to parse in general-purpose programming languages.❮/p❯
❮p❯In this talk, I'll shortly describe the TOML format and show a few use cases in the real world.
I'll then present the ada-toml library itself: its high-level architecture and examples.❮/p❯
