    JSOB - JavaScript OBject literal notation

    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!

    📦 JSOB package

    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',
    }

    Usage

    const JSOB = require('JSOB');
     
    let obj = JSOB.parse(`{
      msg: 'hello!',
    }`);

    TODO

    • 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
