example: Kubernetes

example: K8s volumes in Helm charts[lang][0]=YAML&filter[path][0]=charts/

example: AWS QueuePolicy, written in CloudFormation[lang][0]=YAML

example: functions in Makefiles(!)[lang][0]=Makefile

example: Pygame module usage in Python[lang][0]=Python

example: Gnuplot documentation[lang][0]=Markdown
