Finish JSON API #126

I/we want to finish the JSON API work initially prototyped by Jeff Warren.

Basically this consists of adding & testing the json format from Rails, implementing this in cgimap if needed, and scoping out supporting GeoJSON on some calls so that the API results are more easily usable.


Do you have pointers to the prior work on this?


Jeff's branch is messy but here's a relevant commit.


There isn't any meaningful work on this as far as I know, at least in the rails code.

I don't know what that code @tmcw refers to is - as far as I know it has never been shown to us before, and certainly wasn't discussed with us before it was written.

What anybody working on this does need to do is to work with @zerebubuth to make sure it is compatible with he has done/is planning in cgimap.


@tomhughes Read my comment; I link to the code. It's out of date, and needs tests.


I tried, but the diff was so massive it killed my browser. That does not bode well as it suggests that a massive amount of work has been done without talking to anybody.
