How I feel about XML and JSON  
Friday, 19 March 2010

It appears the herd is deciding to trade off verbose, repetitive tags (XML) for this nasty morass of quotation marks, quote-escaping, matching braces and brackets, and stray commas (JSON). I thought it was bad practice to just eval JSON negating much of its convenience trump. I am taking a liking toward YAML Tiny for which I can write a parser and serializer where needed without taking a sabbatical. This determination is based on my experience using ExtJS to make a complex web application in JSON and with using YAML Tiny in MLT.
