NuGet MyGet

A .Net library to handle conversions from and to JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) strings.

It's quick and lean, without external dependencies. Just a few classes so easily embeddable in your own code or a very small assembly to ship with your code. The code is highly portable, which in general makes it easy to adapt for new platforms.

Code can be compiled using .NET CLI or by launching the bootstrappers in the root of the repository.



Linux / OS X



The bootstrappers will (locally in repo)

  • Fetch and install .NET Core CLI / SDK version needed to compile LitJSON.
  • Fetch and install Cake runner
  • Execute build script with supplied target (--target=[Target]) or by default
    1. Clean previous artifacts
    2. Restore build dependencies from NuGet
    3. Build
    4. Run unit tests
    5. Create NuGet package


This library comes with a set of unit tests using the NUnit framework.

Using LitJSON from an application

Package manager

Install-Package LitJson -Version 0.10.0


dotnet add package LitJson --version 0.10.0

Paket CLI

paket add LitJson --version 0.10.0

Alternatively, just copy the whole tree of files under src/LitJSON to your own project's source tree and integrate it with your development environment.


LitJSON currently targets and supports

  • .NET 6
  • .NET Standard 2.1
  • .NET Standard 2.0
  • .NET Standard 1.5
  • .NET Framework 4.5 and above
  • .NET Framework 4.0
  • .NET Framework 3.5 (including SQLCLR, for which WCOMAB/SqlServerSlackAPI is an example of)
  • .NET Framework 2.0
  • Mono 4.4.2 and above


Each merge to develop is published to our NuGet feed on MyGet and also GitHub Packages.
