The team at JSON Schema recently unveiled that JSON Schema is the newest technical project hosted under the OpenJS Foundation. JSON Schema is a vocabulary that allows for the annotation and validation of JSON documents. Additionally, JSON Schema defines how a JSON should be structured and provides users with human and machine readable documentation.

“We are thrilled to welcome JSON Schema into the OpenJS Foundation. Building a community requires dedicated people and great technology, which JSON Schema already has… As the vendor-neutral home to almost 40 open source projects, JSON Schema already fits in well with our ecosystem of projects,” said Robin Ginn, OpenJS Foundation executive director.
