Documentation : tool list, fileformat...

I try to parse the Alteryx yxmd, yxwz, yxmc... etc files.


It happens the tools and the fileformats are not written in clear : fileformat.png


We should have a list stored somewhere (API, file?) where we can find the information. 


Best regards



Fantastic! A great start even though some are null I can work with that.

@BARTONCONNIE I only filled the one we use.


(and don't hesitate to put a star on the idea 😉 )


This is very helpful @dataprep - it would be useful to have the full documentation for the XML definition (maybe an XSD and an XML Spy doc) for the canvas so that we can all develop analytic against the canvasses running in our env.
