I was just writing a blog post covering profiling of Wikibase and MediaWiki when I found an unexpected call to SyntaxHighlight in my API call.
It turns out that jsonfm is sent to the API even though the API sandbox shows json is selected.
The UI displays at format=json
There are no differences between the formatted options and normal options
In my opinion this is confusing and we should
- Have a default in the API sandbox of jsonfm
- Allow users to set non formatted versions, such as json
