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 implementation of RFC4627.

It supports normal Perl data types like Scalar, Array and Hash, but not blessed references.

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

Literal names will be translated to and from a similar Perl value.

    true  -> '\1'
    false -> undef
    null  -> '0 but true'

Decoding UTF-16 (LE/BE) and UTF-32 (LE/BE) will be handled transparently by detecting the byte order mark, encoding will only generate UTF-8.

ATTRIBUTES

Mojo::JSON implements the following attributes.

error

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

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"}');

encode

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