JSON.NET

There is a separate package that include support for JSON.NET by providing custom converters. You can install is by running:

Install-Package RedStar.Amounts.JsonNet

In this package, there are two custom JSON.NET converters: the ObjectAmountJsonConverter, and the StringAmountJsonConverter.

ObjectAmountJsonConverter

This converter will convert an Amount to and from a JSON object with two properties: value and unit.

So this JSON:

{
    value: 3.4,
    unit: m
}

will convert to new Amount(3.4, LengthUnits.Meter), and vice-versa. Make sure you have registered the units though.

StringAmountJsonConverter

This converter will convert an Amount to and from a regular string. So 3.4 m will convert to new Amount(3.4, LengthUnits.Meter), and vice-versa. Once again, don't forget to register the units.

Usages

The StringAmountJsonConverter can be useful if you are serializing a large amount of Amounts. This can mean a significant optimization because the string representation takes considerably less characters than the object notation.

If the size of your JSON string isn't an issue, the ObjectAmountJsonConverter is the more interesting choice, because an application with no knowledge of RedStar.Amounts can read the value as a double without needing to parse it.
