JSON Linter that allows comments

This project is maintained by codenothing

JSONLint is a JSON Linter that allows for comments in your JSON Files.

Installation

For use with nodejs, use npm

$ npm install -g json-lint

For use in browser environments, include the script tag

<script type='text/javascript' src='jsonlint.js'></script>

Usage

// Require it for nodejs environment
var JSONLint = require( 'json-lint' );

// Run the JSON string through the linter
var lint = JSONLint( json, options );

// Do something with the error
if ( lint.error ) {
    lint.error // Error Message
    lint.line; // Line number in json file where error was found
    lint.character; // Character of line in json file where error was found
}

JSONLint takes two arguments, and throws an error if found.

Options

There is currently only 1 option that is handled: comments, which defaults to true if not set.
