A lot of work has continued to improve the X3D to JSON stylesheet converter.

"The X3dToJson.xslt stylesheet is an experimental effort to help create a JSON encoding for X3D Graphics."

Now documented, with lots of TODO items:


Page sections:

	Overview | Design Goals | Design Patterns | Design Correlations |

	Examples | Features | Issues | Related Work | Resources | Contact

Many thanks to John Carlson for much helpful dialog and suggestions, discussions continue.

Further comment welcome, of course.  Am especially hoping that the Design Patterns, correlations and examples sections will help us to finally get clear as a group on what our best mappings are.

The current conversion pattern is not locked down but is better elaborated than before.  The autogenerated .json variations of X3D scenes in the online example archives have also been updated.

Now we can better:

- compare alternative X3D JSON encodings that other individuals have come up with,
- look at end-user source code for loading and accessing JSON scene-graph data structures,
- repeat/refine work on this design pattern until fully stable.

Climbing the mountain... have fun with X3D JSON!

all the best, Don
