Suggested Fixes

  • A (key,value) pair separated with ':' and a space is expected at this point. Any other entity is not allowed.
  • Ensure the (key,value) pair is nested inside the parent property with two spaces if it is not a root property.
  • Ensure the (key,value) pair is indented properly as compared to other sibling properties (if any).
  • Ensure there is no trailing comma after the value.
  • Ensure any preceding quoted value in the file was closed properly.
