=head1 NAME

Dancer::Serializer::JSON - serializer for handling JSON data

=head1 VERSION

version 1.3512



This class is an interface between Dancer's serializer engine abstraction layer
and the L<JSON> module.

In order to use this engine, use the template setting:

    serializer: JSON

This can be done in your config.yml file or directly in your app code with the
B<set> keyword. This serializer will also be used when the serializer is set
to B<mutable> and the correct Accept headers are supplied.

The L<JSON> module will pass configuration variables straight through.
Some of these can be useful when debugging/developing your app: B<pretty> and
B<canonical>, and others useful with ORMs like L<DBIx::Class>: B<allow_blessed>
and B<convert_blessed>.  Please consult the L<JSON> documentation for more
information and a full list of configuration settings. You can add extra
settings to the B<engines> configuration to turn these on. For example:

            allow_blessed:   '1'
            canonical:       '1'
            convert_blessed: '1'

=head1 METHODS

=head2 serialize

Serialize a data structure to a JSON structure.

=head2 deserialize

Deserialize a JSON structure to a data structure

=head2 content_type

Return 'application/json'
