[Solved]: Yaml or yml? Which do we prefer?

Problem Statement:

According to yaml.org, the official file extension is .yaml.

Is there an official extension for YAML files?

Please use “.yaml” when possible.

However, there seems to be a disagreement on the internet on which extension to use. If you look up examples on the web, many of them use the unsanctioned .yml extension.



Solution:

The “official” extension for YAML is,.yaml while the standard length for file extensions is 3 characters. So people always use .yml

Now the question is what should we use:

You can use both .yaml or .yml extension for YAML files.

but now everyone is using .yml extension. Now we can say

.yml extension become de facto standard for YAML.

I will recommend use .yml
