What I dream of is a higher level higher abstraction than a YAML
editor because the problems I face are not only YAML syntax but that
I don't know what should be where in a scheme file and why.

So I'd like to have a Schema editor. I.e. some editor where I
can edit a list of properties and can e.g. checkmark "required".
And simply type a description into some text field.

And the editor knows where to place the keywords -item -enum
-oneOf -description etc. when doing a Save operation.

Basically what I dream of is more like MarkDown where you write text,
titles paragraphs etc. and that gets magically translated into
valid HTML. Or even better analogy: OpenOffice where you just
write and format your text and one does not have to edit PostScript
printer commands.

But it is likely to stay a dream.

BR and thanks,
