    Default Feature Request: Provide ability for json files as resources

    I would like to leverage the Resources section in Architect as a means of specifying test data for a store with an ajax proxy. There are decent alternatives such as the mock data functionality or editing files on the file system directly, but I think this would be the quickest and most direct for the way my team works.

    Right now I can add a js file and give it a json extension, say for example customers.json, and it will appear just fine in the Resources section. I can give it a relative path like data/customers.json and I can use this in the ajax proxy to load data. Everything works fine.

    The only problem is that the generated app.html tries to do a script include which results in a syntax error since it's a glob of json. To rectify this, I would like the ability to specify js resources but have a flag on them that indicates don't include in app.html even though they will be copied to the server on publish. Or perhaps a new JSON resource type for which this behavior is the default.

    So to be clear you'd like to have them in the resources so you can easily edit/view them?

    Yes, precisely. Putting test data in the Resources section makes it easier to manage for me because it's more immediate.

    It seems it would be a nice idea to support this indeed.
