Works like a charm Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Everything works as advertised. I had to update the /etc/mime.types on Apache in order for JSONovich to read json files with the '.js' file extension, changing the mime type from application/javascript to application/json. This would be nice if you could change which file extensions get parsed by JSONovich.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.3). 

MIME type


Thanks for the feedback.

Re: MIME types and configurability, JSONovich does not look at file extension, but rather MIME type. I chose to go that route because there is a clear way to set up a MIME type-specific stream converter within Firefox extension components, and generally because I find MIME types more reliable than file extensions in the wild, wild web. The JSON format has but one MIME type, application/json, and so that's all I feel comfortable relying upon. I should note that the unofficial text/x-json type, which I gather gained usage before IANA standardized upon application/json, is also supported by JSONovich.
