Build Status PyPI version

Hjson, a user interface for JSON

Hjson Intro

Hjson works with Python 2.5+ and Python 3.3+

The Python implementation of Hjson is based on simplejson. For other platforms see hjson.github.io.

Installation

pip will also add the hjson tool to your PATH (try echo '{a:1}'|hjson).

Commandline

Usage:
  hjson [options]
  hjson [options] <input>
  hjson (-h | --help)
  hjson (-V | --version)

Options:
  -h --help     Show this screen.
  -j            Output as formatted JSON.
  -c            Output as JSON.
  -V --version  Show version.

E.g. echo '{"json":"obj"}' | hjson

Usage

import hjson

Decoding Hjson

text = """{
  foo: a
  bar: 1
}"""

hjson.loads(text)

Result:

OrderedDict([('foo', 'a'), ('bar', 1)])

Encoding Python object hierarchies

hjson.dumps({'foo': 'text', 'bar': (1, 2)})

Result:

{
  foo: text
  bar:
  [
    1
    2
  ]
}

Encoding as JSON

Note that this is probably not as performant as the simplejson version.

hjson.dumpsJSON(['foo', {'bar': ('baz', None, 1.0, 2)}])

Result: '["foo", {"bar": ["baz", null, 1.0, 2]}]'
