utils-hjson-parse

Parse

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status Dependencies

Attempts to parse an input string as Human JSON.

Installation

$ npm install utils-hjson-parse

Usage

var parse = require( 'utils-hjson-parse' );

parse( value )

Attempts to parse an input string as Human JSON.

var out = parse( '{"beep":"boop"}' );
// returns {'beep':'boop'} 
 
out = parse( '{beep:boop"}' );
// returns <Error> 

Notes

  • This function wraps HJSON#parse in a try/catch block.
  • The presence of try/catch within any function prevents JavaScript compiler optimization. By isolating the try/catch block, we minimize the extent of optimization hell.

Examples

var fs = require( 'fs' ),
    path = require( 'path' ),
    parse = require( 'utils-hjson-parse' );
 
// Load an HJSON file... 
var file = path.resolve( '/path/to/file.hjson' );
file = fs.readFileSync( file, {
    'encoding': 'utf8'
});
 
// Attempt to parse the file... 
file = parse( file );
console.dir( file );

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,

$ make view-cov
