termSynsJSON string

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a language-independent data format. It's easy for humans to read and write and for machines to parse and generate. JSON was derived from JavaScript, but as of 2017 many programming languages include code to generate and parse JSON-format data.

Ignition uses the JSON format to store much of its data internally, including Tags and component properties.
