What Problem This Solves
After generating a federal government data catalog file, it can be difficult to know whether that file conforms with the specification.
How This Solves It
This parses a JSON file and indicates whether it's conformant.
Building and running locally
This is an HTML/Coffeescript application. It uses linked repos, so in order to run this locally, you should do the following after cloning:
cd json-validator git submodule init git submodule update
Then you should be able to simply browse the 'json-validator/index.html' file
If you want to make changes, you should change the '.coffee' files, and compile them with the coffeescript compiler:
coffee -c js/*.coffee
