JSONSelect Build Status

CSS-like selectors for JSON.

More info about the JSON:select format

Installation

From your terminal:

gem install json_select

In your Gemfile:

gem 'json_select'

Usage

require 'json_select'

json = { # This would normally be loaded with something like yajl-ruby
  "name" => {
    "first" => "Lloyd",
    "last" => "Hilaiel"
  },
  "favoriteColor" => "yellow",
  "languagesSpoken" => [
    {
      "language" => "Bulgarian",
      "level" => "advanced"
    },
    {
      "language" => "English",
      "level" => "native"
    },
    {
      "language" => "Spanish",
      "level" => "beginner"
    }
  ],
  "seatingPreference" => [ "window", "aisle" ],
  "drinkPreference" => [ "beer", "whiskey", "wine" ],
  "weight" => 172
}

JSONSelect('string:first-child').test(json)    # => true
JSONSelect('string:first-child').match(json)   # => "window"
JSONSelect('string:first-child').matches(json) # => ["window", "beer"]

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with Rakefile or version. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
