Euphemus

A JSON parser in C.

There are several JSON parsers in C out there already. The distinctive feature of Euphemus is that it supports schema-assisted parsing: You give it a [http://json-schema.org/](JSON schema), and it will generate C source files defining the corresponding structs, and produce instances of those structs during parsing. So code in C can access JSON data almost as easily as code in a dynamic language. E.g., with a schema like

{
  "type": "object",
  "euphemusStructName": "foo",
  "properties": {
    "bool": { "type": "boolean" },
    "str": { "type": "string" },
    "num": { "type": "number" }
  }
}

you might parse a corresponding JSON document with

struct foo s;
struct eu_parse *parse = eu_parse_create(foo_to_eu_value(&foo));

assert(eu_parse(parse, json, json_len));
assert(eu_parse_finish(parse));
eu_parse_destroy(parse);

if (s.bool)
        printf("str = %.*s, num = %f\n", (int)s.str.len, s.str.chars, s.num);

Euphemus also supports schema-less parsing, so it is not necessary to have a full schema for a document, or any schema at all, in order to parse it.

Euphemus is a work in progress. It can parse and generate JSON, but currently only supports a subset of JSON schema.

Euphemus was the helmsman on the voyage of the Argonauts.
