I'm shopping for a hypermedia format for a ground-up API rewrite which my employer has tasked me with. It is bewildering to see the vast number of hypermedia formats out there (Hal, Collection+Json, Siren, Json-LD/Hydra, JsonApi etc.)
I'm attracted to Mason due to its robustness e.g. incorporation of JSON-Schema, link templating, and error handling, yet without imposing a rigid verbose data structure such as with CJ and Siren. All the other formats look good on the surface, but once I get into the weeds I realize every one of them leaves out something huge (particularly error formatting and advanced data structures for form submissions.) I also really like how Mason Draft 2 merges links, templates, and actions into one @controls object. It is conceptually much simpler and leads to a cleaner data structure.
I'm just wondering - what's the status of Draft 2? I'm not seeing a lot of action over the last few months. Does that mean it's stalled? Or perhaps that it's "good" and everyone is starting to implement with it? Also, what's the overall status of Mason? Any bigger names using it yet?
