Like JSON, but a bit less of a pain. Uses an actual JS parser (acorn) to read object literal syntax (including comments!), without running the code. Only supports JSON-compatible types (numbers, boolean, strings, objects, and arrays). No need to worry about quoting keys and all that junk. If it's valid JS, it should be valid JSOB!
This project is not particularly well tested, so maybe don't use it in prod!
Here's some JSOB:
msg: 'hello!''quotes': "optional but fine!"// this is a comment!! wowww'multiline support': `Yup! You can't use tags or substitutions,but otherwise go for it.`// why not have a trailing comma while we're at it?last: 'property'
const JSOB = ;let obj = JSOB;
- much, much bigger test suite
- non-JSON serialization with options
- self-contained parser- we don't technically need a whole JS parser so this could be a much smaller package
