dot_json Build Status

Utilities for working with serde_json::Map structures as "dot maps".

dot_json = "0.2"

extern crate serde_json;

use dot_json::value_to_dot;
use serde_json::{Map, Value};

fn main() {
	let obj = json!({
		"foo": "Lorem ipsum",

			"deep": {
				"one": true,
				"two": false,
	let obj_dot = value_to_dot(&obj);
	// obj_dot is now: {
	//     "foo": "Lorem ipsum",
	//     "bar.0": 123,
	//     "bar.1": null,
	//     "bar.2.baz": "Dolor sit amet",
	//     "": true,
	//     "qux.deep.two": false
	// }

	assert_eq!(Value::Bool(false), arr[""]);
	assert_eq!(Value::Null, arr["1"]);


Used by value_to_dot and arr_to_dot_map to convert deep serde_json::Map to shallow dot maps.


Used by value_to_dot to convert deep serde_json::Value::Array vectors to shallow dot maps.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
