Named rjson, appropriately. It’s quite basic just now, but contains methods for interconversion between R objects and JSON. Something like this:

> library(rjson)
> data <- list(a=1,b=2,c=3)
> json <- toJSON(data)
> json
[1] "{"a":1,"b":2,"c":3}"
> cat(json, file="data.json")

Use cases? I wonder if RApache could be used to build an API that serves R data in JSON format?
