JSONExp build status

Powerful, expressive pattern matching for data structures

"It's like regexes, but for JSON!" -- A perceptive individual

Huh?

Perhaps an example would be illustrative?

var JSONExp = require('jsonexp')

// Need to find a 30-year-old male from Berlin
var test = JSONExp('{ "name": [NAME], "male": true, "age": 30, "home": "Berlin", ... }')

var people = [
    { name: "Bob", male: true, age: 42, home: "San Francisco", lame: true },
    { name: "Sue", male: false, age: 23, home: "Berlin", awesome: true },
    { name: "Jim", male: true, age: 30, home: "Berlin", stoic: true }]

people.forEach(function(p) {
    console.log(test(p))
})

The output of this would be:

null
null
{ NAME: 'Jim' }
