Strip comments from JSON. Lets you use comments in your JSON files!

This is now possible:

{
    // rainbows 
    "unicorn": /* ❤ */ "cake"
}

It will remove single-line comments // and multi-line comments /**/.

Also available as a gulp/grunt/broccoli plugin and a require hook.

There's already json-comments, but it's only for Node.js and uses a naive regex to strip comments which fails on simple cases like {"a":"//"}. This module however parses out the comments.

$ npm install --save strip-json-comments
$ bower install --save strip-json-comments
$ component install sindresorhus/strip-json-comments
var json = '{/*rainbows*/"unicorn":"cake"}';
JSON.parse(stripJsonComments(json));
//=> {unicorn: 'cake'} 

Type: string

Accepts a string with JSON and returns a string without comments.

$ npm install --global strip-json-comments
$ strip-json-comments --help
