Hjson is a syntax extension to JSON. It's NOT a proposal to replace JSON or to incorporate it into the JSON spec itself. It's intended to be used like a user interface for humans, to read and edit before passing the JSON data to the machine.


Example from the web:
{ # hash style comments # (because it's just one character) // line style comments // (because it's like C/JavaScript/...) /* block style comments because it allows you to comment out a block */ # Everything you do in comments, # stays in comments ;-} }
