Ask questionsTolerate trailing commas in jsonc format

Would it be possible to add tolerance for trailing commas to the jsonc (JSON With Comments) format? Even as an optional setting that is off by default. While I can understand not adding support to the json (spec-compliant) format, there doesn't seem to be a good reason not to add it (either on automatically or configurable) to jsonc.

In case there's any doubt over what I mean, here's an example.

    "foo": 123,
    "bar": [
        "ghi", // trailing comma: okay!
    ], // trailing comma: okay!

Ah, I see, thanks for explaining. I think you're right... many "jsonc" parsers accept trailing commas, while many don't. The Python one that I'm using happily does (and indeed I chose it partly for that reason).

Indeed, I was the one (as far as I'm aware) who requested the allowTrailingCommas feature for settings files, and that's great. :-)

No, I don't have a JSON schema. Maybe a setting like allowTrailingCommas could be added to the [json] language section in VS Code settings? Ideally this would be configurable on a per-directory or even per-file basis, but I suppose that comes down to how VS Code workspace settings work in general. Perhaps support for that has recently been added?
