    Well at least in MySQL you can store and search json objects. I don't recommend it, but when you don't want to normalise some data it comes in handy.

    You can do it also in postgres, there is json type

    Not really...
    Even if that works... Why? Just why?

    @Konsole it's mind boggling the first time you do it. But I tend to only use it for non essential data that serves no purpose at a database level.

    non searchable, non relational data, or I couldn't be bothered setting up 2-3 more tables for a small piece of data that isn't going to be selected directly anyway.

    But I'm sure it has its uses for more practical data as well.

    I like this little tool. https://nosqlbooster.com/

    I put my json data in a mongodb and with the little helper you can write sql statements to query it.

    @Konsole well json is pretty nice format compared to xml and you can also store xml type, what is missing is storing yaml 🙂

    @vane well I would take json over yaml anyday.

    And quick question, are there any performance benefits of storing as Jason?

    @Konsole I don’t know 🤷‍♂️ it’s good to store unstructured data as json, maybe if you want to query both sql and json from one database and combine those results but I can’t think of any good usage example.

    But I am not database expert.
