Historically web sites have been developed using HTML for their markup either by authoring it directly or through abstraction to generate it. The currently available tools exist in a continuum of static, developer-oriented tools and dynamic services that cater to non-technical users. In this paper, we propose an approach that sits in the middle by using JSON for site definitions. The definition is leveraged on the client-side for editing, bridging the continuum’s ends.
