Documentation

jstyleson

jstyleson is a python library to parse JSON with js-style comments.

JSON by standard does not allow comments, and the python standard json module does not offer options to parse a JSON string with comments. It will not be happy with commented JSON:

import json
json_str_with_comments = """{
    // Single-line comment
    "foo": "bar"
    /*
    Multi-line comment
     */
}
"""
json.loads(json_str_with_comments) # Raise Exception

jstyleson try to make it happy with your js-style commented JSON, by first removing all comments inside, then hand it to the standard json module.

Installation

pip install jstyleson

Usage

jstyleson provide some wrapper function around the standard json module:

jstyleson.loads(json_str_with_comments)
jstyleson.dumps(dict())

Under the hood, jstyleson do nothing but remove all comments in the JSON string, via the dispose function. So you can invoke it manually like this:

valid_json_str = jstyleson.dispose(json_str_with_comments)

Testing

python setup.py test
