NAME ^

Test::JSON - Test JSON data

VERSION ^

Version 0.11

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Test::JSON;

 is_valid_json $json,                 '... json is well formed';
 is_json       $json, $expected_json, '... and it matches what we expected';

EXPORT ^

DESCRIPTION ^

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a lightweight data interchange format. Test::JSON makes it easy to verify that you have built valid JSON and that it matches your expected output.

See http://www.json.org/ for more information.

TESTS ^

is_valid_json

 is_valid_json $json, '... json is well formed';

Test passes if the string passed is valid JSON.

is_json

 is_json $json, $expected_json, '... and it matches what we expected';

Test passes if the two JSON strings are valid JSON and evaluate to the same data structure.

Test::Differences is used to provide easy diagnostics of why the JSON structures did not match. For example:

   Failed test '... and identical JSON should match'
   in t/10testjson.t at line 14.
