JSON for Elixir

Elixir implementation (with an Erlang parser) of the JSON specification to RFC 4627. ExJSON generate JSON string from keyword lists and maps and can parse into those structures also.

Installation

Add HTTPoison to your mix.exs dependencies:

def deps do
  [{:exjson, "~> 0.6.0"}]
end

and run $ mix deps.get.

Generating a JSON string from a keyword list

 ExJSON.generate([ key: "some value" ])
 #=> "{\"key\":\"some value\"}"

 ExJSON.generate([ k: [ 1, 2, 3 ] ])
 #=> "{\"k\":[1,2,3]}"

 ExJSON.generate([ k1: [ k2: [ k3: "v3" ] ] ])
 #=> "{\"k1\":{\"k2\":{\"k3\":\"v3\"}}}"

 ExJSON.generate([
    image: [
      width: 800,
      height: 600,
      title: "View from 15th Floor",
      thumbnail: [
        url: "http://www.example.com/image/481989943",
        height: 125,
        width: 100
      ],
      ids: [ 116, 943, 234, 38793 ]
    ]
 ])
 #=> "{\"image\":{\"height\":600,\"ids\":[116,943,234,38793],\"thumbnail\":{\"height\":125,\"url\":\"http://www.example.com/image/481989943\",\"width\":100},\"title\":\"View from 15th Floor\",\"width\":800}}"

Generating a JSON string from a map

 ExJSON.generate(%{
  location: %{
    lat: -47.8,
    lng:  23.8
  },
  name: "The name",
  phone: "666-6666",
  urls: [
   "http://example1.org",
   "http://example2.org"
  ]
 })
 #=> "{\"location\":{\"lat\":-47.8,\"lng\":23.8},\"name\":\"The name\",\"phone\":\"666-6666\",\"urls\":[\"http://example1.org\",\"http://example2.org\"]}"

Parsing JSON string to keyword list

 ExJSON.parse(
 '{
   "key": "value",
   "another_key": {
     "k1": "v1",
     "k2": "v2",
     "k3": "v3"
   }
 }')
 #=> [ { "key", "value" }, { "another_key", [ { "k1", "v1" }, { "k2", "v2" }, { "k3", "v3" } ] } ]

 ExJSON.parse(
 '{
    "key": "some value",
    "another_key": [ "value1", "another value", "value 3" ],
    "nested_key": {
      "inside_key": "a value",
      "bool_value1": true,
      "bool_value2": false,
      "nil_value": null
    },
    "tags": [ "test1", "test2", "test3" ]
 }')
 #=> [ { "key", "some value" }, { "another_key", [ "value1", "another value", "value 3" ] }, { "nested_key", [ { "inside_key", "a value" }, { "bool_value1", true }, { "bool_value2", false }, { "nil_value", nil } ] }, { "tags", [ "test1", "test2", "test3" ] } ]

Parsing JSON string to map

 ExJSON.parse('{
  "location": {
    "lat": -47.8,
    "lng": 23.8
  },
  "name": "The name",
  "phone": "666-6666",
  "urls": [
    "http://example1.org",
    "http://example2.org"
  ]
 }', :to_map)
 #=> %{"location" => %{"lat" => -47.8, "lng" => 23.8}, "name" => "The name", "phone" => "666-6666", "urls" => ["http://example1.org", "http://example2.org"]}
