Last version Build Status Coverage Status Dependency status Dev Dependencies Status NPM Status Donate

Modern JSON interface. propositions for ECMAScript 7.

Why

  • High level methods for manipulate JSON files.
  • Backward compatibility with JSON Object in Node/Browser.
  • Async support (callback/promise) based on ECMAScript proposal.

JSON Future is based into a set of cool libraries to handle JSON, but some of this libraries uses promises or callback style. This library adds an extra layer to call these libraries uniformly.

Install

npm install json-future --save

Usage

const jsonFuture = require('json-future')

Don't be afraid to replace for the default JSON object. The library is specially designed for be compatible and don't break your code:

JSON = require('json-future')

Also you can do this action using the register helper:

require('json-future/register')

API

In async methods, if you don't provide a callback for node style, then the method return a Promise.
