hjson-d

Hjson-d is a Hjson parser written in D. Hjson is a syntax extension to JSON, designed to be easier for humans to work with. It improves readability and helps avoid bugs caused by missing/trailing commas:

// example.hjson
{
    "name": "Hjson",
    "readable": {
        omitQuotes: This is a quoteless string
        omitCommas: [
            1
            2
            3
        ]
        trailingCommas: {
            a : true,
            b : false,
            c : null,
        }
        multilineStrings:
            '''
            Lorem
            ipsum
            '''
        # Comments
        // C-style comments
        /*
            Block
            comments
        */
    }
}

Getting started

Add hjson-d to your DUB project:

dub add hjson-d

Features

Simple parsing

Hjson strings can be parsed using the parseHjson method:

import std.json : JSONValue;
import std.file : readText;
import hjson;

JSONValue value = readText("example.hjson").parseHjson;

When parseHjson encounters invalid input, it will throw a HjsonException describing the error.

ASDF interop

Add hjson-d:asdf to your DUB project to allow parsing Hjson directly into ASDF representation:

dub add hjson:asdf

All you have to do is call parseHjsonToAsdf:

import asdf.asdf : Asdf;
import std.file : readText;
import hjson.asdf;

Asdf asdf = readText("example.hjson").parseHjsonToAsdf;

Limitations

  • Emitting Hjson is not supported.
  • parseHjson only reads a single Hjson value and will not attempt to look further in the input to find errors. Because of that certain errors will not be detected:
[1, 2, 3, 4] 5 #Trailing 5 will not cause an error because parsing stops after [1, 2, 3, 4]
  • Parsing from arbitrary forward ranges is currently not supported, but is planned for the future.

Bugs

  • Omitting braces for root object is not supported.
