I’ve been really getting into JSON as a transfer protocol lately. Having been recently muddled in XML, the simplicity of JSON is a welcome respite.
Despite its simplicity, I’ve still seen quite a bit of poorly formed JSON around. And I had a bit of trouble finding a simple JSON Validator / Reformatter service on the web anywhere. So I decided to create my own.
It was really just a quick little project using a lot of third party stuff. The Blueprint CSS Framework, jQuery and Ben Spencer’s little jsonval flex/bison script made it dead simple to throw together a validator service in no time. The reformatting code I whipped together in about 30 minutes.
As usual, feedback is welcome – feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments.
