was this directed at me specifically or were you just asking everyone?
spoggyIwan Aucamp (Gitter): could this felt your need https://scenaristeur.github.io/spoggy-simple/js-xlsx/
melvincarvalhoMark Hughes (happybeing) (Gitter): JSON-LD is a tricky one. It was designed to do one of two things. Either extract RDF from JSON. Or be a serialization for RDF in JSON. In the end the spec went with the latter. 1.0 was a reasonably good approximation. But lacked relative URIs. That's largely fixed in 1.1 Is there anything you dont like about JSON-LD?
melvincarvalhoI think 1.1. is quite good in terms or RDF. Happy to hear thoughts otherwise. What would have been REALLY nice is if JSON had had a native way to serialize a URI e.g. with angle brackets <URI> like we use in Turtle. I believe that was discussed too. But it's not native and would require transpiling. And transpiling is a pain. Would have made life a lot easier tho if that was native in JSON. In another universe maybe!
melvincarvalhoMy feeling is that there's quite a large proliferation of JSON-LD now in 2020. e.g. the fediverse. Used on many millions of web pages for SEO in data islands. More than in the past, anyway. Turtle still very popular in LOD.
