Command-line tool for checking circle.yml file's validity



A command-line tool for checking the validity of a “circle.yml” configuration file.

Create a command line tool to interact with CircleCI REST API

I know this is an old topic, but I wrote a tool to interact with CircleCI from the command line, and it can do exactly what you’re asking for:

You can install it using pip:
pip install circlecli
or clone it and manually install:
python install

Either method will install a command line script and you can just do this:
circlecli check /path/to/circle.yml

Alternatively, if you happen to write Python, you can use this tool in your code:
from circlecli import CircleAPI, validate_circle_yml
