HAML vs YAML: What are the differences?
Developers describe HAML as "HTML Abstraction Markup Language - A Markup Haiku". Haml is a markup language that’s used to cleanly and simply describe the HTML of any web document, without the use of inline code. Haml functions as a replacement for inline page templating systems such as PHP, ERB, and ASP. However, Haml avoids the need for explicitly coding HTML into the template, because it is actually an abstract description of the HTML, with some code to generate dynamic content. On the other hand, YAML is detailed as "A straightforward machine parsable data serialization format designed for human readability and interaction". A human-readable data-serialization language. It is commonly used for configuration files, but could be used in many applications where data is being stored or transmitted.
HAML and YAML belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.
