simdjson_nodejs

tests npm npm npm

Node.js bindings for simdjson, a gigabytes-per-second JSON parser, possibly the fastest JSON parser at the moment. simdjson as well as simdjson_nodejs work on popular platforms such as OS X, Linux, and Windows.

Installation

The installation can be done in one step with npm:

npm install simdjson

Usage

API Documentation

See index.d.ts for available simdjson binding functions and their input/output types.

Check if a JSON string is valid:
const simdjson = require('simdjson');

const jsonString = "{ \"answer\": 42 }";
const valid = simdjson.isValid(jsonString); // true
Parsing a JSON string (lazily)

Obs.: Please see that the overhead of converting a C++ object to a JS object might make the parsing time in the NodeJS slower for the simdjson. Therefore, parsing it lazily is preferrable. For more information check issue #5.

const simdjson = require('simdjson');

const jsonString = "{   \
  \"foo\": {            \
    \"bar\": [ 0, 42 ]  \
  }                     \
}";
const JSONbuffer = simdjson.lazyParse(jsonString); // external (C++) parsed JSON object
console.log(JSONbuffer.valueForKeyPath("foo.bar[1]")); // 42
Parsing a JSON string

Obs.: Parsing a JSON lazily is preferrable.

const simdjson = require('simdjson');

const jsonString = "{   \
  \"foo\": {            \
    \"bar\": [ 0, 42 ]  \
  }                     \
}";
const parsedJSON = simdjson.parse(jsonString); // parsed JSON object

Benchmarks

Requirements: git, npm, node, a linux-like system, a recent compiler (GCC,clang)

To benchmark directly from the project:

git clone https://github.com/luizperes/simdjson_nodejs.git
cd simdjson_nodejs
npm install
npm run benchmark
