JSON Object

Why we chose JSON.

Every standardized hand history MUST be in a self contained JSON <standardized_hand_history> object.

We chose JSON due to it meeting the following needs:

  • It is plain text and accessible.

  • It is understandable by any person without requiring third party software (other than a text editor).

  • It is structured and the structure can be standardized and documented.

  • It is an efficient structured format.

  • JSON enjoys wide adoption and therefore development libraries across all programming languages.
