A simple Go package to Query over JSON Data. It provides simple, elegant and fast ODM like API to access, query JSON document


Install the package using

To use the package import it in your *.go code

Let's see a quick example:

import gojsonq ""

func main() {
	const json = `{"name":{"first":"Tom","last":"Hanks"},"age":61}`
	name := gojsonq.New().FromString(json).Find("name.first")
	println(name.(string)) // Tom

Another example:

See in playground

package main

import (

	gojsonq ""

func main() {
	const json = `{"city":"dhaka","type":"weekly","temperatures":[30,39.9,35.4,33.5,31.6,33.2,30.7]}`
	avg := gojsonq.New().FromString(json).From("temperatures").Avg()
	fmt.Printf("Average temperature: %.2f", avg) // 33.471428571428575

You can query your document using the various query methods such as Find, First, Nth, Pluck, Where, OrWhere, WhereIn, WhereStartsWith, WhereEndsWith, WhereContains, Sort, GroupBy, SortBy and so on. Also you can aggregate data after query using Avg, Count, Max, Min, Sum etc.
