Hi,

I've been developing an app that will use the Pinboard JSON format when accessing data from the API. Based on an error I hit from a networking library I use, I noticed that the Content-Type returned along with the HTTP request for the data is text/plain. The content types that are usually considered valid for JSON are application/json, text/json and text/javascript.

I've edited the library to accept the text/plain content type for now, but is this something you could consider amending from the server side? More information on the official JSON content type is here : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/477816/the-right-json-content-type

Thanks,
Steve

Did this ever get looked at. I came across this today so I guess not ?  Hopefully the correct content-type can be set in the response soon ?
