Today I added the beginnings of native JSON support in xmlsh. This is in SVN only, no new releases yet. I am soliciting oppinions on features for JSON.
Why JSON in xmlsh ? Well I have to learn to stop hating and "Love the bomb".
JSON is prevalent in the web world. I want to add better support for web services. While the existing json2xml command works fine it is a bit clumbsy. So I decided to support native JSON parsing with "jsonread" and JSONPATH with the "jsonpath" command. Also variables can be pure parsed JSON objects.
From here what ? This is a good start but I would like the equivilent of <[ xquery ]> but to work on JSON. Maybe thats overkill ? How about simple array and member access natively like $X.Y
Not sure how far I want to go with this.
Suggestions welcome !
