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

strip-json-comments Build Status

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

This is now possible:

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

It will replace single-line comments // and multi-line comments /**/ with whitespace. This allows JSON error positions to remain as close as possible to the original source.

Also available as a gulp/grunt/broccoli plugin.

Install

$ npm install --save strip-json-comments

Usage

const json = '{/*rainbows*/"unicorn":"cake"}';
 
JSON.parse(stripJsonComments(json));
//=> {unicorn: 'cake'}
