NAME ^

DJSON - The Degenerate JSON Data Language

SYNOPSIS ^

    use DJSON;

    my $data = decode_djson $djson_string;

DESCRIPTION ^

DJSON is a data language that is simlar to JSON, just more chill. All valid JSON is also valid DJSON (and represents the same thing when deocded), but DJSON lets you omit a lot of the syntax that makes JSON a pain to write.

DJSON SYNTAX ^

Here is some examples of DJSON followed by equivalent JSON:

Words don't need quotes. A list of things is an array:

    foo bar baz

    [ "foo", "bar", "baz" ]

Strings with spaces can use single or double quotes:

    'foo bar'      # <= This is (a comment indicating) a string
    # More commenting
    "baz  boom "

    [ "foo bar ", "baz  boom " ]

Hashes still need curly braces:

    {
        foo { bar baz }
        num -1.2e3
    }

    { "foo": { "bar": "baz" }, "num": -1.2e3 }

More soon...

NOTE: You may want to look at the tests (especially t/decode.t) to see the full abilities of DJSON.

STATUS ^

BEWARE!!!

DJSON is mst's idea, and ingy's Pegex based implementation. The language is just a baby, and will change a lot, or may go away entirely.

Development people are currently working on this in #pegex in irc.freenode.net. Please drop by.
