NAME

Mojo::JSON - Minimalistic JSON

SYNOPSIS

  use Mojo::JSON;

  my $json   = Mojo::JSON->new;
  my $string = $json->encode({foo => [1, 2], bar => 'hello!'});
  my $hash   = $json->decode('{"foo": [3, -2, 1]}');

DESCRIPTION

Mojo::JSON is a minimalistic and relaxed implementation of RFC 4627. While it is possibly the fastest pure-Perl JSON parser available, you should not use it for validation.

It supports normal Perl data types like Scalar, Array reference, Hash reference and will try to stringify blessed references.

  [1, -2, 3]     -> [1, -2, 3]
  {"foo": "bar"} -> {foo => 'bar'}

Literal names will be translated to and from Mojo::JSON constants or a similar native Perl value.

  true  -> Mojo::JSON->true
  false -> Mojo::JSON->false
  null  -> undef

Decoding UTF-16 (LE/BE) and UTF-32 (LE/BE) will be handled transparently, encoding will only generate UTF-8. The two unicode whitespace characters u2028 and u2029 will always be escaped to make JSONP easier.

ATTRIBUTES

Mojo::JSON implements the following attributes.

error

  my $err = $json->error;
  $json   = $json->error('Oops!');

Parser errors.

METHODS

Mojo::JSON inherits all methods from Mojo::Base and implements the following new ones.

decode

  my $array = $json->decode('[1, 2, 3]');
  my $hash  = $json->decode('{"foo": "bar"}');

Decode JSON string.

encode

  my $string = $json->encode({foo => 'bar'});

Encode Perl structure.

false

  my $false = Mojo::JSON->false;
  my $false = $json->false;

False value, used because Perl has no native equivalent.

true

  my $true = Mojo::JSON->true;
  my $true = $json->true;

True value, used because Perl has no native equivalent.
