What Is JSON?

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data interchange format that is easy for humans to read and write and easy for machines to parse and generate.

It is a text format that is used to transmit data between a server and a web application, as well as between different parts of a web application. JSON is commonly used in web development for tasks such as sending and receiving data between a server and a client-side web application, or for storing data in a format that can be easily exchanged between different systems.

JSON is based on a subset of the JavaScript programming language, and it is often used with JavaScript, although it can be used with any programming language that can parse and generate JSON data.

JSON data is organized into key-value pairs, where keys are strings and values can be strings, numbers, arrays, objects, booleans, or null.

See the JSON specification for more information.
