What? You’re not surprised?
Of course you aren’t.
And that’s my problem.
JSON is both wonderful and terrible at the same time. And I won’t go into all my reasons for saying that. The point is, again… that it’s been thrust upon an unwilling world.
It’s that I’m forced to use it, or at least be concerned with some of its implementation details, whether I want to or not.
No doubt there are other languages I hate even more, for specific objective and subjective reasons. But I don’t have to use those languages. So I don’t care! Nobody’s forcing me to care about Lua’s floating point precision on a daily basis. Nobody makes me write pickle formatted data just to be considered “respectable”. Nobody chides me for not using Erlang-style key names in my API.
End of rant.
