Is it possile to parse something like this ?
Nope. That's not a plist, just some random file with a plist extension.
That was my initial thought too, but I looked around and couldn't find any official spec for json plists. I think maybe it's something that TextMate has done to encode plists in a friendlier format?
If there's a standard, even if it's emerging, I'd be happy to add support for it. I just want documentation so we don't end up implementing something broken.
I thin kits this:
From the look of it its the same content, just another format
Well, just about any data structure can be turned into a plist. My opinion is that if plutil doesn't speak it, we shouldn't support it.
That said... turns out plutil has a json format now. I can't find any docs, but it should be relatively easy to write tests to verify that we're doing the right thing.
Reopening this request.
i tried this: http://scw.us/iPhone/plutil/plutil.pl
but it did not read or convert this file, how did you do it ?
$ man plutil
also did not work, maybe its outdated on ubuntu...
Ah, ubuntu. plutil is part of OSX. Can't help you on other platforms.
Don't have any problems with supporting NeXT property lists but it seems a bit esoteric. Parsing and emitting binary and json plists is definitely a desired feature.
