What is JSON?

JSON is an acronym standing for JavaScript Object Notation. JSON is a lightweight and language-independent format used for data interchanging.

The following is an example of JSON representing the info of the American rock band, My Chemical Romance.

{
  "artist_name": "My Chemical Romance",
  "origin": "Newark, New Jersey, U.S.",
  "genres": [
    "Alternative rock",
    "Emo",
    "Pop punk",
    "Post-hardcore",
    "Punk rock",
    "Hard rock"
  ],
  "established": 2001,
  "active": true,
  "website": "https://www.mychemicalromance.com",
  "members": [
    "Gerard Way",
    "Ray Toro",
    "Mikey Way",
    "Frank Iero"
  ],
  "albums": [
    "I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love",
    "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge",
    "The Black Parade",
    "Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys"
  ]
}

Why minify JSON?

Minifying JSON is the process of removing any unnecessary characters, such as white spaces, tabs, and new lines from JSON data in order to make it compact for production use without touching or changing its original data and functionality. Minifying JSON immensely helps reduce the file size so that bandwidth usage will be a lot less when transmitting over the internet.

For example, here is the minified version of the JSON data above. As you can see, the JSON data is reduced into one single line with all the unnecessary characters removed.

{"artist_name":"My Chemical Romance","origin":"Newark, New Jersey, U.S.","genres":["Alternative rock","Emo","Pop punk","Post-hardcore","Punk rock","Hard rock"],"established":2001,"active":true,"website":"https://www.mychemicalromance.com","members":["Gerard Way","Ray Toro","Mikey Way","Frank Iero"],"albums":["I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love","Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge","The Black Parade","Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys"]}
