    I wouldn't recommend using standard JSON by the way because it doesn't support comments (bit of a deal breaker usually). I would suggest JSONC which supports comments and trailing commas, or JSON5 which is a bit more widely supported.

    At best, you could hope that they add .json5 or .yaml support one day, but I am not holding my breath.
