JASON is just like JSON, but unlike JSON it can:
- serialize objects with methods
- serialize objects with cyclic references
- understand Dates, Regexps, Booleans, etc, and restore them with
.parse()with their proper types/classes.
- understand and serialize all the JS primitives, including
- properly recreate the holes in Arrays
JASON lets you pass objects as text between processes and/or threads.
Warning: unlike JSON, JASON is unsafe. You should only use it in contexts where you have strong guarantees that the strings that you pass to the JASON parser have been produced by a JASON formatter from a trusted source.
parse function is just a call to
sampleOutput.js has example output from running
JASON.stringify(global) in Node.js.
var JASON = require("JASON"); str = JASON.stringify(obj); obj = JASON.parse(str);
The easiest way to install
JASON is with NPM:
npm install JASON
