JSON is better on Liquid themes now


Writing JSON for Liquid themes is already easy with intelligent code completion and inline documentation, but now it's also easier to refactor as we move objects in your schema tags and your settings_schema.json files with support for trailing commas and comments.

Note: Apps that parse JSON definitions from themes can still use pure JSON, but they should introduce support for reading (parsing) comments and trailing commas to handle eventual changes made directly on theme files.

Learn more about the JSON editing experience and JSON with comments at - VS Code extension and - Theme architecture. Happy coding!
