JSon Tip Provider

A JSon Tip provider requires a JSon file with information. The TipProvider implementation can be very simple. An accompanying JSon file is dynamically fetched from the internet or it is statically included with your bundle.

In case you pull it from the internet, make sure that you do not waste bandwidth by pulling a file that you already have (use the HTTP HEAD function).

Examples

This provider consumes a json file that is stored in its own package. It contains the provider information and an array of tips with embedded html and images.


This provider also consumes a json file with provider information and an array of tips, but in this case, each tips points to a html page on the internet. Also notice the use of a variable to point to a base url. This can be used for local testing purposes.
