JSON Alternatives

    JSON is described as '(JavaScript Object Notation) 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'. There are five alternatives to JSON for Mac, Windows, Linux and Online / Web-based. The best alternative is YAML, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like JSON are TOML (Free, Open Source), Solidity (Free, Open Source), XML (Free) and Eno (Free, Open Source).
