ninjs: News in JSON
One standard, countless use cases.
ninjs standardizes the representation of news in JSON – a lightweight, easy-to-parse, data interchange format.
Almost every media organization today is working on a project (or ten) that involves expressing the contents of a news item in JSON. From content APIs to mobile applications to document databases, JSON has moved into a position of technical prominence across the enterprise. A few years back, we went around the table at an IPTC meeting and realized nearly all of us had our own internal approaches for serializing news data in JSON. And so a standard was born. Approved and released in October 2013, ninjs provides key properties and structures required to represent news and publishing information.
