  • Hi Ben, BA> http://benatkin.com/2012/09/11/json-has-elements-too/ BA> Are any of you using these terms? Do you think they enhance BA> understanding of JSON, or are just grammar details? Do you agree that BA> heavy use of the XML terminology helps people work through its BA> complexity? I can't think of a reason *not* to use the terms consistently. It helps to be specific. e.g...

  • Thanks for taking the time to write your propositions and post here. I agree with others here, Jos making the same points I would (though I don't care for YAML myself). I maintain the REBOL JSON library and, like Ben, like the idea of comments. They used to be there, and I only removed support for them after Douglas Crockford confirmed that they would never come back, and that JSON...

  • Hi Patrick, P> I am developing a superset of JSON called RSON (Readable Serial P> Object Notation), at http://code.google.com/p/rson/ I know there was a pyson project, but if it's dead, maybe you could use the name. I think PySON is a much better fit for your notation. It's not that your notation isn't readable--it's very much like REBOL in many ways--but the indent option gives it...

  • The REBOL %json.r script on json.org has been updated. The new version fixes a naive escaping problem. It's also available on REBOL.org. --Gregg

  • Hi Greg, GP> As far as JSON goes -- by definition: it is "JavaScript Object GP> Notation" -- so -- on the technical definition -- JSON is in fact a GP> "JavaScript-ONLY" object notation mechanism. I've never interpreted it that way. I always took the JS part to mean that JSON's syntax was based on JavaScript's syntax, which gives you context (and a nice acronym :). From what I've...

  • I've updated the json.r REBOL module to align with the current JSON spec. It passes all tests except #18, which is the enforcement of the array depth limit at 20 levels. REBOL doesn't have a true map type under R2 (R3 will have one), and JSON keys can create invalid words in objects. Using blocks solves that, but you lose full isomorphism if round-tripping. Let me know if that...
