JSON for OpenLaszlo is an implementation of JSON for the OpenLaszlo platform.  It is an Open Source package available under the MIT License.

== Requirements
Any ECMAScript interpreter or compiler.  (There are {other implementations}[http://www.json.org/] available for Javascript[http://www.json.org/js.html] and ActionScript -- the sole benefit of this implementation is that it's compatible with OpenLaszlo[openlaszlo.org].)

The *.lzx files are OpenLaszlo source files, and require the OpenLaszlo[http://openlaszlo.org] SDK.

== Installation
Download the zip file from http://osteele.com/sources/openlaszlo/json/openlaszlo-json-1.0.zip.

== Usage
  JSON.stringify(123) // => '123'
  JSON.parse('123') // => 123

See the header of json.js for additional usage information.

== Examples

Here is a complete OpenLaszlo program that prints a JSON string, and a parsed object, to the debugger:
  <canvas debug="true">
    <script src="json.js">
      Debug.write(JSON.stringify([1729, "argos", {a: 1}]));
      Debug.write(JSON.parse('[1729, "argos", {"a": 1}]'));

For an example of using JSON with AJAX to parse response text, see {json-example.lzx}[json-example.lzx].  This example is also running on the {blog page for this project}[http://osteele.com/archives/2006/02/json-for-openlaszlo].
