Read the Documentation

Decode JSON values into structured ReasonML and OCaml types. Inspired by Elm's Json.Decode and the Decode Pipeline, bs-decode is an alternative to bs-json that focuses on structured, type-safe error handling, rather than exceptions. Additionally, bs-decode collects up everything that went wrong while parsing the JSON, rather than failing on the first error.

Installation

Install via npm:

npm install --save bs-decode

Update your bsconfig.json

"bs-dependencies": [
  "bs-decode"
],

Usage

The following is available to give you an idea of how the library works, but the complete documentation will probably be more useful if you want to write your own decoders.

// imagine you have a `user` type and `make` function to construct one
type user = {
  name: string,
  age: int,
  isAdmin: bool,
  lastLogin: option(Js.Date.t)
};
 
let make = (name, age, isAdmin, lastLogin) =>
  { name, age, isAdmin, lastLogin };
 
/**
 * Given a JSON value that looks like:
 * { "name": "Michael", "age": 32, "roles": ["admin"] }
 *
 * you can write a function to convert this JSON into a value of type `user`
 */
module Decode = Decode.AsResult.OfParseError; // module alias for brevity
 
let decode = json =>
  Decode.Pipeline.(
    succeed(make)
    |> field("name", string)
    |> field("age", intFromNumber)
    |> field("roles", map(List.contains("admin"), list(string)))
    |> optionalField("lastLogin", date)
    |> run(json)
  );
 
let myUser = decode(json); /* Ok({ name: "Michael", ...}) */
