JSON-LD Is A W3C Recommendation

JSON-LD Is A W3C Recommendation

From the post:

The RDF Working Group has published two Recommendations today:

  • JSON-LD 1.0. JSON is a useful data serialization and messaging format. This specification defines JSON-LD, a JSON-based format to serialize Linked Data. The syntax is designed to easily integrate into deployed systems that already use JSON, and provides a smooth upgrade path from JSON to JSON-LD. It is primarily intended to be a way to use Linked Data in Web-based programming environments, to build interoperable Web services, and to store Linked Data in JSON-based storage engines.
  • JSON-LD 1.0 Processing Algorithms and API. This specification defines a set of algorithms for programmatic transformations of JSON-LD documents. Restructuring data according to the defined transformations often dramatically simplifies its usage. Furthermore, this document proposes an Application Programming Interface (API) for developers implementing the specified algorithms.

It would make a great question on a markup exam to ask whether JSON reminded you more of the “Multicode Basic Concrete Syntax” or a “Variant Concrete Syntax?” For either answer, explain.

In any event, you will be encountering JSON-LD so these recommendations will be helpful.
