non-binary format for solution and label files

Post by sdwarwick » Wed Sep 05, 2018 5:14 am

development of forms and label solutions is often the responsibility of software development organizations. it is common now that version management is done using tools like git. These systems are not capable of managing revisions in binary files. Further, the binary files provide no method of externally identifying configuration changes.

It is proposed that nicelabel move to supporting a human readable format for solutions/label files. XML is traditional for these types of configuration files, but a formatted JSON may be ok if it provided line breaks to support change management.
