Here comes the second episode of the NetRel show: NetRel episode 002 - DIY YANG Browser. Be ready to dive into the paths we took to create a YANG Browser for Nokia SR Linux platform.

YANG data models are the map one should use when looking for their way to configure or retrieve any data on SR Linux system. A central role that is given to YANG in SR Linux demands a convenient interface to browse, search through, and process these data models.

To answer these demands, we created a web portal - - it offers:

  • Fast Path Browser to effectively search through thousands of available YANG paths
  • Beautiful Tree Browser to navigate the tree representation of the entire YANG data model of SR Linux
  • Source .yang files neatly stored in nokia/srlinux-yang-models repository for programmatic access and code generation
