New submission from Luka Rahne:


import json
j = json.loads(
    "phoneNumber": [
            "type": "home",
            "number": "212 555-1234"


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 13, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/json/__init__.py", line 326, in loads
    return _default_decoder.decode(s)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/json/decoder.py", line 366, in decode
    obj, end = self.raw_decode(s, idx=_w(s, 0).end())
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/json/decoder.py", line 384, in raw_decode
    raise ValueError("No JSON object could be decoded")
ValueError: No JSON object could be decoded

My comment:
It is annoying in case of manual json editing where you can't know where jeson typeing error is.
