copy and paste yaml file to the linux terminal

Jump to solution

Hi Team, 

When you copy a YAML file from the Openshift documentation to the Linux `vim ` file, the indentation of the file changes, and lot of time is spent to indent the YAML file .

Any suggestions to resolve the issue. Thanks!

Hello @sakshi-80 !

Thanks for reaching out !

You might want to refer this thread : https://learn.redhat.com/t5/Containers-DevOps-OpenShift/Copy-tex-into-yaml/m-p/37084/emcs_t/S2h8ZW1h... 

To turn off autoindent when you paste code in vim mode :

press esc then  :set paste

then press i ( to insert mode ) -  Notice the “- -  INSERT (paste) - -” at the bottom of the Vim window.

then paste the yaml code. See if this helps.

Hi,

 

Do you browse docs and copy YAML from your host machine or workstation machine directly from lab environment? I personally copy YAML from docs in workstation machine, paste and modify it in gedit editor and jus then paste it to vim. By doing it this way there is no indentation issues at all.
