A place to collect stuff related to JSON
This is JSON Blue, a small website to collect JSON stuff. Including standard document, variant data format, tools, application and some history document. If you found anything missing and deserver to list on here. Please report an issue on GitHub.

Data in JSON Format
- RFC 7095 jCard: The JSON Format for vCard
- RFC 7265 jCal: The JSON Format for iCalendar
- RFC 7946 GeoJSON is a format for encoding a variety of geographic data structures.
- TopoJSON is an extension of GeoJSON that encodes topology.
- JSON-LD is a lightweight Linked Data format.
- JSON-stat is a simple lightweight JSON dissemination format best suited for data visualization, mobile apps or open data initiatives, that has been designed for all kinds of disseminators.
- SPARQL is a set of standards for the query and update of RDF data, along with ways to access such data over the web. This document describes the representation of SELECT and ASK query results using JSON.
- JSON Schema is a vocabulary that allows you to annotate and validate JSON documents. Implementations.
- JSON Schema Markdown Tools makes it easier by providing a number of scripts that can turn JSON Schema files into readable Markdown documentation that is ready for consumption on GitHub or processed using Jekyll or other static site generators.
- TJSON(Tagged JSON) s a tagging scheme/microformat for enriching the types that can be stored in JSON documents. It augments the existing types present in JSON, codifiying ad hoc practices already commonly used for processing JSON into a schema-free, self-describing format.
- objecthash A way to cryptographically hash objects (in the JSON-ish sense) that works cross-language. And, therefore, cross-encoding.
Formats Similar to JSON.
- Hjson is a syntax extension to JSON. It’s NOT a proposal to replace JSON or to incorporate it into the JSON spec itself. It’s intended to be used like a user interface for humans, to read and edit before passing the JSON data to the machine.
- RSON file format is easy to edit, diff, and version control, that is a superset of JSON and smaller than YAML.
- rsonlite is the easiest way to create custom indented data file formats in Python. It is a single small module that can be shipped with your application, or it can be easy-installed or pipped from PyPI.
- LJSON JSON extended with pure functions.
- LJSON(Loose JSON) a superset of JSON with a loose format requirement.
- JSON Lines also called newline-delimited JSON. JSON Lines is a convenient format for storing structured data that may be processed one record at a time.
- Jsonnet A data templating language for app and tool developers.
- JSON5 The JSON5 Data Interchange Format (JSON5) is a superset of JSON that aims to alleviate some of the limitations of JSON by expanding its syntax to include some productions from ECMAScript 5.1.
- HOCON(Human-Optimized Config Object Notation) is a format for human-readable data, and a superset of JSON and .properties.
- Rison is a data format focus on URL friendly and compact. The structure is like JSON, but use different character for notation.
Not Similar to JSON, but related to it.
- Mark is a new unified notation for both object and markup data. The notation is a superset of what can be represented by JSON, HTML and XML, but overcomes many limitations these popular data formats, yet still having a very clean syntax and simple data model.
- MessagePack is an efficient binary serialization format. It lets you exchange data among multiple languages like JSON.
- BSON short for Binary JSON, is a binary-encoded serialization of JSON-like documents.
- BJSON is binary form of JSON.
- UBJSON(Universal Binary JSON) The universally compatible format specification for binary JSON.
- JSONx is an IBM® standard format to represent JSON as XML.
- MSON is a plain-text, human and machine readable, description format for describing data structures in common markup formats such as JSON, XML or YAML.
- YAML is a human-readable data serialization language.
- TOML aims to be a minimal configuration file format that’s easy to read due to obvious semantics.
- JSON API
- JSON-RPC is a stateless, light-weight remote procedure call (RPC) protocol.
- JSONP(JSON with Padding is used to request data from a server residing in a different domain than the client.
- HAL(Hypertext Application Language) is a simple format that gives a consistent and easy way to hyperlink between resources in your API.
- Collection+JSON is a JSON-based read/write hypermedia-type designed to support management and querying of simple collections.
- OData JSON Format
- JSON Graph is a convention for modeling graph information as a JSON object. Applications that use Falcor represent all their domain data as a single JSON Graph object.
- JSONiq is a query and processing language specifically designed for the popular JSON data model.
- JSON Formatter was created to help with debugging. As JSON data is often output without line breaks to save space, it is extremely difficult to actually read and make sense of it.
- jq is like sed for JSON data - you can use it to slice and filter and map and transform structured data with the same ease that sed, awk, grep and friends let you play with text.
- gron transforms JSON into discrete assignments to make it easier to grep for what you want and see the absolute ‘path’ to it.
- JSON Generator tool for generate random JSON data.
- fx is another command-line JSON processing tool.

Comments in JSON
I removed comments from JSON because I saw people were using them to hold parsing directives, a practice which would have destroyed interoperability. I know that the lack of comments makes some people sad, but it shouldn’t.
Suppose you are using JSON to keep configuration files, which you would like to annotate. Go ahead and insert all the comments you like. Then pipe it through JSMin before handing it to your JSON parser.
Its hard to find a good domain available. And I love the color blue. Also, I am a fan of Dragon Ball. Super Saiyan Blue is very powerful. So I take the name.
