    JSON-escape

    Fast JSON string escaping in JS.

    It is faster to escape small JSON strings manually than using native JSON.stringify().

    The main focus is a very fast check for strings that do not need any escaping while also improving escaping itself or at least not to go below JSON.stringify.

    Benchmarks

    Running the benchmarks (npm run benchmark) show the benefits:

    node ./benchmark

    The benchmarks ran on Node.js 10.2.1 using a Lenovo T450s with an i7-5600u. The "longer" benchmarks are worst case benchmarks.
