Export YML from project configuration

I would find it useful to be able to set all the project settings in the UI and then have an option to download a YML that has been generated from my settings.

    Yep, it's been suggested before. Looking at the number of requests for this feature it seems that it's a good time to implement it :)

    I just ran into a situation where this feature would be very useful. Here's the use case: I am setting up a project build for the first time. It's time consuming for me to change the yml, push the changes, and wait for the build to start. Well, the build is going to be time consuming no matter what. BUT, in the name of shortening the feedback look, I will make changes in the UI and ignore the YML file for now. Fast forward, I have my config working. Now, I want to put that config into source control and/or be able to duplicate it easily. Ideally, I could export the settings to a generated yml file and start using that instead.

    +1 to this. I just created a duplicate http://help.appveyor.com/discussions/suggestions/371-it-would-be-wi... - you can close that and I will watch this one instead.
