jsone

hex.pm version Build Status Code Coverage [License: MIT](LICENSE)

An Erlang library for encoding, decoding JSON data.

Features

  • Provides simple encode/decode function only
  • RFC7159-compliant
  • Supports UTF-8 encoded binary
  • Pure Erlang
  • Highly Efficient
    • Maybe one of the fastest JSON library (except those which are implemented in NIF)
      • See [Benchmark](benchmark/README.md)
    • Decode function is written in continuation-passing style(CPS)

QuickStart

# clone
$ git clone git://github.com/sile/jsone.git
$ cd jsone

# compile
$ make compile

# run tests
$ make eunit

# dialyze
$ make dialyze

# Erlang shell
$ make start
1> jsone:decode(<<"[1,2,3]">>).
[1,2,3]

Enable HiPE

If you want to use HiPE compiled version, please add following code to your rebar.config.

{overrides,
  [
    {override, jsone, [{erl_opts, [{d, 'ENABLE_HIPE'}, inline]}]}
  ]}.

or use native profile. The make command supports profile as well. For example:

$ make start profile=native

Usage Example

%% Decode
> jsone:decode(<<"[1,2,3]">>).
[1,2,3]

> jsone:decode(<<"{\"1\":2}">>).
#{<<"1">> => 2}

> jsone:decode(<<"{\"1\":2}">>, [{object_format, tuple}]). % tuple format
{[{<<"1">>, 2}]}

> jsone:decode(<<"{\"1\":2}">>, [{object_format, proplist}]). % proplist format
[{<<"1">>, 2}]

> jsone:try_decode(<<"[1,2,3] \"next value\"">>). % try_decode/1 returns remaining (unconsumed binary)
{ok,[1,2,3],<<" \"next value\"">>}

% error: raises exception
> jsone:decode(<<"1.x">>).
** exception error: bad argument
     in function  jsone_decode:number_fraction_part_rest/6
        called as jsone_decode:number_fraction_part_rest(<<"x">>,1,1,0,[],<<>>)
     in call from jsone:decode/1 (src/jsone.erl, line 71)

% error: returns {error, Reason}
> jsone:try_decode(<<"1.x">>).
{error,{badarg,[{jsone_decode,number_fraction_part_rest,
                              [<<"x">>,1,1,0,[],<<>>],
                              [{line,228}]}]}}


%% Encode
> jsone:encode([1,2,3]).
<<"[1,2,3]">>

> jsone:encode(#{<<"key">> => <<"value">>}).  % map format
> jsone:encode({[{<<"key">>, <<"value">>}]}). % tuple format
> jsone:encode([{<<"key">>, <<"value">>}]).  % proplist format
<<"{\"key\":\"value\"}">>

> jsone:encode(#{key => <<"value">>}). % atom key is allowed
<<"{\"key\":\"value\"}">>

% error: raises exception
> jsone:encode(#{123 => <<"value">>}). % non binary|atom key is not allowed
** exception error: bad argument
     in function  jsone_encode:object_members/3
        called as jsone_encode:object_members([{123,<<"value">>}],[],<<"{">>)
     in call from jsone:encode/1 (src/jsone.erl, line 97)

% error: returns {error, Reason}
> jsone:try_encode({[{123, <<"value">>}]}).
{error,{badarg,[{jsone_encode,object_members,
                              [[{123,<<"value">>}],[],<<"{">>],
                              [{line,138}]}]}}

% 'object_key_type' option allows non-string object key
> jsone:encode({[{123, <<"value">>}]}, [{object_key_type, scalar}]).
<<"{\"123\":\"value\"}">>

% 'undefined_as_null' option allows encoding atom undefined as null
> jsone:encode(undefined,[undefined_as_null]).
<<"null">>

%% Pretty Print
> Data = [true, #{<<"1">> => 2, <<"array">> => [[[[1]]], #{<<"ab">> => <<"cd">>}, [], #{}, false]}, null].
> io:format("~s\n", [jsone:encode(Data, [{indent, 2}, {space, 1}])]).
[
  true,
  {
    "1": 2,
    "array": [
      [
        [
          [
            1
          ]
        ]
      ],
      {
        "ab": "cd"
      },
      [],
      {},
      false
    ]
  },
  null
]
ok

%% Number Format
> jsone:encode(1). % integer
<<"1">>

> jsone:encode(1.23). % float
<<"1.22999999999999998224e+00">> % default: scientific notation

> jsone:encode(1.23, [{float_format, [{decimals, 4}]}]). % decimal notation
<<"1.2300">>

> jsone:encode(1.23, [{float_format, [{decimals, 4}, compact]}]). % compact decimal notation
<<"1.23">>

%% If you want to safely cast object keys to atoms, the `attempt_atom' option will help.
> jsone:decode(<<"{\"hello\": \"world\"}">>, [{keys, attempt_atom}]).
#{<<"hello">> => <<"world">>}  % There is no atom named "hello", so the key is decoded as binary.

> hello.  % Create "hello" atom.
hello

> jsone:decode(<<"{\"hello\": \"world\"}">>, [{keys, attempt_atom}]).
#{hello => <<"world">>} % Now, the key is decoded as atom.

* see [jsone:datetime_encode_format()](doc/jsone.md#type-datetime_encode_format)

** {json, IOList} and {json_utf8, Chars} allows inline already encoded JSON values. For example, you obtain JSON encoded data from database so you don't have to decode it first and encode again. See [jsone:json_term()](doc/jsone.md#type-json_term).
