Populate a JSON file with Rails fields in Profile.all

I’m using jQuery Tokeninput for tags in my Rails app. I have never dealt with JSON before (I’m new to programming) but I was wondering if there was a way to create then populate a json file with string values from Profile.all.

Here is the index in my TagsController:

class TagsController < ApplicationController
  def index
    @tags = Tag.where("name like ?", "%#{params[:q]}%")
    respond_to do |format|
      format.json { render :json => @tags.map(&:attributes) }

If it is possible, can someone give me an idea of how it might be done? If more code is needed let me know!
