JSON Schema - the good, the bad and the ugly

July 6, 2016 | 1 min Read

In the last years we have been heavily using JSON Schema, a web standard to describe JSON instances/your data in web applications.

For example in the JSONForms project we make heavy use of JSON Schema. JSONForms is an AngularJS-based framework to simplify the creation of forms for data entry and edit in web applications. It allows you to declaratively define the content and layout of a form and to embed the form into your HTML with one simple tag. We use JSON Schema in this context to describe the JSON (data) that should be displayed in the forms and to refer to the properties that are to be displayed.

While using JSON Schema we of course learned a lot about it - the good, the bad and the ugly. Next week we will present this knowledge in a nutshell at the Fullstack conference in London - check out the program and the sneak preview.

Join us for our talk on Thursday “JSON Schema - the good, the bad and the ugly”. Looking forward to meet you there!
