JSON is a bad config file format
For the record, INI files or TOML is better
@sir TOML might be the best thing to happen to config files since sliced bread.
JSON is fine as a human-readable interchange format, but really annoying to write by hand.
@mort @sir Wait.. you used to write your config on sliced bread??
@rune @mort @sir yeah, that was popular before punchcards became a thing.
But even earlier than sliced bread, we used to write configs on clay tablets.Now some people write configs on glass tables, so you could say we've come a full circle.
