  • Schema validation - Add JSON Schema to enforce the structure of your data
  • Schema and data locking - Once you're confident that your schema or data won't change, lock them down so your app will never break
  • Flexible syntax - Forget the quotes! You can use javascript object syntax ({ a: 1 } instead of { "a": 1 })
