    LSON: LiveScript Object Notation Parser

    Same API as the JSON module, but for LiveScript objects. Also supports CSON and JSON (since LSON is a superset of them).

    Uses the LiveScript parser to do the actual parsing. Will not execute code.

    Install

    npm install lson
    

    API

    lson.parse: Given a string, returns an object.

    lson.parseFile: Given a filename (extensions .lson and .json.ls are common), reads and parses it synchronously, and returns an object

    lson.stringify: Given an object, returns a string (currently outputs pretty-printed JSON).

    LSON format

    LSON is a superset of JSON and CSON. Here is an example:

    an_array: <[ an array of strings ]>
    another_array: [
      'another'
      'array'
    ]
    # we can even have comments
    a_dict: {
      key: 'value'
    }
    a_string: 'some string'
    another_string: \anotherstring

    This corresponds to the following JSON:

    {
      "an_array": [
        "an",
        "array",
        "of",
        "strings"
      ],
      "another_array": [
        "another",
        "array"
      ],
      "a_dict": {
        "key": "value"
      },
      "a_string": "some string",
      "another_string": "anotherstring"
    }

    Example

    lson = require('lson')
     
    parsed = lson.parse('''
    an_array: <[ an array of strings ]>
    another_array: [
      'another'
      'array'
    ]
    # we can even have comments
    a_dict: {
      key: 'value'
    }
    a_string: 'some string'
    another_string: \\anotherstring
    ''')
     
    console.log(lson.stringify(parsed))
