json-inspect

Get JSON context information based on a string

Build Status

Usage

Add json-inspect to your project:

Installation (Node.JS, browser via Browserified)

npm install --save json-inspect

Reference it in your code:

var jsonInspect = require('json-inspect');

Installation (via bower)

bower install --save json-inspect

Add it to your HTML file:

<script src="bower_components/json-inspect/dist/json-inspect.js"></script>

Reference it in your code:

var jsonInspect = require('json-inspect');

Looking up the context

Example string:

{
  "string": "value",
  "number": 3,
  "object": {
    "key": "val"
  },
  "array": [
    1,
    2
  ]
}

Look up the context at a given line and character:

var context = jsonInspect(myJson, 2, 6); 
// { key: 'string', start: 4, end: 21, value: 'value' }
 
var context = jsonInspect(myJson, 9, 5); 
// { key: 'array.1', start: 93, end: 102, value: 2 }

Look up the context at a given offset in the string:

var context = jsonInspect(myJson, 60); 
// { key: 'object.key', start: 56, end: 71, value: 'val' }

Two phases

You can split the process into two steps to avoid the repeated overhead of parsing if you do a lot of lookups on the same data.

var tree = jsonInspect.parse(myJson);
var context = jsonInspect.getContext(tree, 8, 5);
