README

Yojson: JSON library for OCaml

This library parses JSON data into a nested OCaml tree data structure.

Library documentation

Currently at https://ocaml-community.github.io/yojson/

Examples

A simple example on how to parse JSON from a string literal.

let json_string = {|
  {"number" : 42,
   "string" : "yes",
   "list": ["for", "sure", 42]}|}
(* val json_string : string *)

let json = Yojson.Safe.from_string json_string
(* val json : Yojson.Safe.t *)

Format.printf "Parsed to %a" Yojson.Safe.pp json

Related tooling

Yojson is a pretty common choice for parsing JSON in OCaml, as such it is the base for a number of tools and libraries that are built on top of it.

  • ppx_deriving_yojson to automatically generate code that converts between Yojson.Safe.t and custom OCaml types

  • ppx_yojson_conv, an alternative to ppx_deriving_yojson from Jane Street with different design decisions

  • atd, generates mapping code from .atd specification files and can be used in multiple languages

  • jsonm is an alternate JSON parser that parses JSON into a stream of items, so the complete data structure does not have to be in memory.
