A simple script to minify valid JSON, containing C/C++ style comments

Project description


A port of the `JSON-minify` utility to the Python language.


`JSON-minify` minifies blocks of JSON-like content into valid JSON by removing
all whitespace *and* JS-style comments (single-line `//` and multi-line
`/* .. */`).

With `JSON-minify`, you can maintain developer-friendly JSON documents, but
minify them before parsing or transmitting them over-the-wire.


You can install using pip as follows::

pip install JSON-minify

If you wish to use the development version fo JSON-minify, you can install it
as follows::

pip install git+


To run the tests, just execute
