tclyaml_sources - TclYAML - How To Get The Sources

Table Of Contents


package require Tcl 8.5
package require tclyaml ?0.5?


Welcome to TclYAML, a binding to the C-based libyaml parser library for YAML Ain't Markup Language.

The audience of this document is anyone wishing to either have just a look at TclYAML's source code, or build the packages, or to extend and modify them.

For builders and developers we additionally provide

  1. TclYAML - License.

  2. TclYAML - The Installer's Guide.

  3. TclYAML - The Developer's Guide.


Source Location

The official repository for TclYAML can be found at, with mirrors at and, in case of trouble with the main location.


Assuming that you simply wish to look at the sources, or build a specific revision, the easiest way of retrieving it is to use one of the following links:

  1. Core Tarball

  2. Core Zip Archive

  3. ChiselApp Tarball

  4. ChiselApp Zip Archive

  5. Github Zip Archive

To generalize the above, replace trunk in the links above with any commit id, tag or branch name to retrieve an archive for that commit, the last commit having the tag, or the last commit on the named branch.

As an example, use the links below to retrieve the last commit for tag v0.5:

  1. Core v0.5 Tarball

  2. Core v0.5 Zip Archive

  3. ChiselApp v0.5 Tarball

  4. ChiselApp v0.5 Zip Archive

  5. Github v0.5 Zip Archive

Beware however that fossil's trunk branch is called master in github, and that github commit ids do not match fossil commit ids, at all. Only tags and the other branch names match.

Source Code Management

For the curious (or a developer-to-be), the sources are managed by the Fossil SCM. Binaries for popular platforms can be found directly at its download page.

With that tool available the full history can be retrieved via:

fossil clone tclyaml.fossil

followed by

mkdir tclyaml
cd tclyaml
fossil open ../tclyaml.fossil

to get a checkout of the head of the trunk.
