Existing schemas in this repository

This repository contains schemas for the following:

Note: these schemas are probably not perfect. See below.

I have read the relevant specifications, but I certainly have missed some points in them, and as a result these schemas may not be accurate. Not to mention that some constraints expressed by these specifications are not enforceable by JSON Schema.

Requests and contributions

Both are welcome:

  • if you stumble upon a JSON data format which you would like a JSON Schema for, feel free to open a feature request so that a schema be written for that format;

  • if, on the other hand, you have written a schema for an existing format, and wish to add it to this repository, you are welcome to open a pull request so that this schema be included in the examples. Provided that you are ready to comply to the...
