JSON (JavaScript Object Notation)

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data interchange format that is easy for humans to read and write and easy for machines to parse and generate. It is primarily used to transmit data between a server and a web client as a simpler, more readable alternative to XML. JSON is based on a subset of the JavaScript syntax but is language-independent, making it versatile and widely adopted in many technologies and languages, including Python, Java, and Node.js. The structure of JSON uses key-value pairs and arrays, making structured data easily accessible and manipulable within applications.
