Read JSON

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status Dependencies

Reads the entire contents of a JSON file.

Installation

$ npm install utils-fs-read-json

Usage

var readJSON = require( 'utils-fs-read-json' );

readJSON( path, [ options,] clbk )

Reads the entire contents of a JSON file.

readJSON( '/path/to/data.json', onData );
 
function onData( error, data ) {
    if ( error ) {
        console.error( error );
    } else {
        console.log( data );
    }
}

The function accepts the same options as fs.readFile(), but encoding is always set to utf8. In addition, a JSON reviver may be provided.

var opts = {
    'reviver': reviver
};
 
readJSON( '/path/to/data.json', opts, onData );
 
function onData( error, data ) {
    if ( error ) {
        console.error( error );
    } else {
        console.log( data );
    }
}
 
function reviver( key, value ) {
    if ( key === 'beep' ) {
        return 'boop';
    }
    return value;
}

readJSON.sync( path[, options] )

Synchronously reads the contents of an entire JSON file.

var out = readJSON.sync( '/path/to/data.json' );
if ( out instanceof Error ) {
    throw out;
}
console.log( out );

The function accepts the same options as fs.readFileSync() and the asynchronous readJSON method above.

Examples

var path = require( 'path' ),
    readJSON = require( 'utils-fs-read-json' );
 
var file = path.join( __dirname, 'data.json' );
 
// Sync:
var data = readJSON.sync( file, 'utf8' );
// returns <object>
 
console.log( data instanceof Error );
// returns false
 
data = readJSON.sync( 'beepboop', {
    'encoding': 'utf8'
});
// returns <error>
 
console.log( data instanceof Error );
// returns true
 
 
// Async:
readJSON( file, onJSON );
readJSON( 'beepboop', onJSON );
 
function onJSON( error, data ) {
    if ( error ) {
        if ( error.code === 'ENOENT' ) {
            console.error( 'JSON file does not exist.' );
        } else {
            throw error;
        }
    } else {
        console.log( 'Beep: %s.', data.beep );
    }
}

To run the example code from the top-level application directory,

$ node ./examples/index.js

Tests

Unit

Unit tests use the Mocha test framework with Chai assertions. To run the tests, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

$ make test

All new feature development should have corresponding unit tests to validate correct functionality.

Test Coverage

This repository uses Istanbul as its code coverage tool. To generate a test coverage report, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

$ make test-cov

Istanbul creates a ./reports/coverage directory. To access an HTML version of the report,
