[erlang-questions] JSON for STDLIB
Mon Sep 7 03:34:23 CEST 2015
Is there any reason why a JSON library is not included into Erlang/OTP
releases? Since it was initially planned for telco systems, it includes
ASN.1 library. It has some other transfer-format libraries as well.
Since Erlang is now widely used in internet domain, I believe that
inclusion of JSON library under STDLIB is essential. There are many open
source variants, but I like Jiffy and Jsx. They support MAPS too.
I propose to the stakeholders, to include one of them into the Erlang/OTP
package. This will ensure the continuity of the library as well.
I don't think JSON will die very soon, although it is loosely defined. Some
times, loose definition is its strength.
