JavaScript Object Notation

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a lightweight data-interchange format. It is easy for humans to read and write. It is easy for machines to parse and generate. It is based on a subset of the JavaScript Programming Language Standard ECMA-262 3rd Edition - December 1999. JSON is a text format that is completely language independent, but uses conventions that are familiar to programmers of the C-family of languages including C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Perl, Python, and many others. These properties make JSON an ideal data-interchange language. JSON.org. (n.d.). Introducing JSON. Retrieved March 17, 2021, from https://www.json.org/json-en.html.
