JSON (JavaScript Object Notation, http://json.org) 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. This feature can also be found in Python. 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, Tcl, and many others. These properties
make JSON an ideal data-interchange language.

This package provides a simple encoder and decoder for JSON notation. It
is intended for use with client-side Javascript applications that make
use of HTTPRequest to perform server communication functions - data can
be encoded into JSON notation for use in a client-side javascript, or
decoded from incoming Javascript requests. JSON format is native to
Javascript, and can be directly eval()'ed with no further parsing overhead.

It builds these binary package:
php-services-json - PHP implementaion of json_encode/decode

The package appears to be lintian clean.

My motivation for maintaining this package is: besides the fact that
libjs-edit-area is nice by itself and does what it is meant for, it's
also a dependency of eXtplorer that I would like to have uploaded in the

The upload would close the following ITP: #561873

The package can be found on ftparchive.gplhost.com:

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards,

Thomas Goirand
