json is bad, xml is bad, yaml is bad, all the modern configuration formats are awful. we should just use the openbsd configuration style
@wxcafe I am thoroughly in the json camp. not because it's an especially good format. with a little schema help, it can describe just about any data, in a wildly popular human readable grammar. often it's better to have any dumb standard than no standard
@wxcafe @jleedev accessibility is weird. there's nothing inherently more *data* about cf versus conf versus json. conf puts your config in reach for some linux nerds like you and me. json puts your config in reach for a huge ecosystem of people doing everything from fullstack web devs to amateur Minecraft modders.
