jsop

One-way data binding for JSON files

jsop is a new kind of JSON file reader/writer for Node 0.12 and io.js powered by Object.observe.

Before

var fs = require('fs')
 
var config = JSON.parse(fs.readFileSync('config.json'))
config.foo = 'bar'
fs.writeFile('config.json', JSON.stringify(config), function(err) {
  if (err) throw err
})

After

var jsop = require('jsop')
 
var config = jsop('config.json')
config.foo = 'bar'

Changes are automatically written to file. If file doesn't exist, it will be created.
