JSON consists of "name : object" pairs and punctuation in the form of brackets, parentheses, semi-colons and colons. Each object is defined with an operator like "text :" or "image :" and then grouped with a value for that operator. The simple structure and absence of mathematical notation or algorithms, JSON is easy to understand and quickly mastered, even by users with limited formal programming experience, which has spurred adoption of the format as a quick, approachable way to create interactive pages.
