The world of configuration management seems to for some reason run off YAML, but that's the only places I've seen it recently (ansible, puppet etc).

SaltStack uses YAML for their tools, too. I personally can empathize with them (as a user of configuration management) about this as writing JSON would be nightmare with all the quoting, commas, curly braces etc. But that's my own preference maybe.
