json-extra

Build Status Coverage Status

json-extra gives you a little more power to json files and strings

Getting started

npm install --save json-extra

or

yarn add json-extra

Usage

With json-extra you can do such things like read json files and directly parse them into an object or just create a new json file. JSON.parse and JSON.stringify is also attached to json-extra.

Include json-extra as follows:

import * as json from 'json-extra';

Sync vs. Async

Example:

import { write, writeSync } from 'json-extra';

// Promises:
write('/any/path/you/want', 'filename.json', '{json: "string or object"}')
  .then(() => console.log('success!'))
  .catch(err => console.error(err))

// Sync:
try {
  writeSync('/any/path/you/want', 'filename.json', '{json: "string or object"}')
  console.log('success!')
} catch (err) {
  console.error(err)
}

Methods

isJson()

isJson(json)

Checks if the input is a valid json object

Example:

import { isJson } from 'json-extra';

isJson({ myJson: '' }); // true
isJson('{ myJson: '' }'); // false
isJson('nope'); // false

isJsonString()

isJsonString(jsonString)

Checks if the given string would be a valid json object

Example:

import { isJsonString } from 'json-extra';

isJsonString('{ myJson: '' }'); // true
isJsonString({ myJson: '' }); // false
isJsonString('nope'); // false

chain()

chain(json[, options])

Options:

  • type (array | string): Get specific types. Available options: array, object, string, boolean or number
  • delimiter (string): Changes the delimiter between the chained strings. Default: '/'

Example:

import { chain } from 'json-extra';

var myJsonString = {
    myJson: {
        sub: [
            'components',
            'pages',
            'services',
        ],
    },
};

chain(myJsonString);
// returns: [ 'myJson', 'myJson/sub', 'myJson/sub/components', 'myJson/sub/pages', 'myJson/sub/services' ]
chain(myJsonString, { type: 'array' });
// returns: [ 'myJson/sub' ]
chain(myJsonString, { type: 'string' });
// returns: [ 'myJson/sub/components', 'myJson/sub/pages', 'myJson/sub/services' ]

readToObj()

readToObj(path)

Read a json file and returns an obj.

Sync: readToObjSync()

Example:

import { readToObj } from 'json-extra';

// read a json file and return an object
readToObj('/path/to/json')
    .then(data => console.log('My nice data: ', data))
    .catch(console.error);

write()

write(path, filename[, content])

write a new json file. The content could be a object or a json string.

Sync: writeSync()

Example:

import { write } from 'json-extra';

// writed a new json file
write('/any/path/you/want', 'filename.json', '{json: "string or object"}')
    .then(() => console.log('Written!'))
    .catch(console.error);

find()

find(jsonObject, findString[, options])

Finds a specific key in the json

Options:

  • type (array | string): Get specific types. Available options: array, object, string, boolean or number
  • max (boolean): The maximum of keys to find. Default: -1 alias unlimited

Example:

import { find, readToObj } from 'json-extra';

const myJsonObejct = readToObj('./package.json')
const foundKeys = find(myJsonObject, 'dependencies')
// returns: [ { key: 'dependencies', type: 'object', data: {} } ]
You can’t perform that action at this time.
