I've released a small command-line tool, written in Go, to help build gitignore files, called getignore.

Pre-compiled binaries are available here:

This is my first Go project. I'm sure I missed some idioms and made some awkward implementation choices. Feedback is welcome.

This pretty much sums up how I feel working with JSON Schema (emphasis mine):

"It seems JSON schema only exists to validate if a data structure conforms to certain structured constraints. If you are doing this you are making presumptions upon the data, which aren't primitive. Primitive is the primary advantage of JSON over XML. If you are going to take that away then you are probably violating separation of concerns between the data and the consuming application. If you really want to do this you might as well just be using XML, which allows all manners of complex capabilities without violating separations of concerns."
