I have a love-hate relationship with YAML as a metadata format. I love the ability to tag out fields and using dataview to grab them - and the ability to natively use cssclass, tags, and aliases fields.
But… man, I just can’t stand having all that mess at the top of the file. I don’t want to scroll through all the junk to get to the data. I really would love to store the metadata at the end - so much so, that is what I do for now and use a table format for the metadata to make it look beautiful. But I loose the access to the growing number of plugins that honor YAML processing.
Is anyone equally bothered by the YAML at the top requirement - and found a workaround (e.g. a plugin or CSS fragment that will always keep it hidden? a plugin that could preprocess the file to force the yaml to appear at the bottom?)
Or any hint that the YAML at the top requirement will be loosened? YAML front matter
Thank you, thank you
