A fast, simple parser for terribly broken JSON

Project description

JSOM - not quite JSON, but close enough

jsom is a simple and quick Python 3.7+ parser for terribly broken JSON.

Installation

$ pip install jsom

Usage

jsom works like this:

>>> import jsom
>>> broken_json = "{\"foo\": {bar: 1, 'baz':,}, bar: 1, baz: [1,2,3,],}")
>>> jsom.JsomParser(ignore_warnings=jsom.ALL_WARNINGS).loads(broken_json)
{'foo': {'bar': 1, 'baz': None}, 'bar': 1, 'baz': [1, 2, 3]}

jsom happily gobbles up the following:

  • unquoted keys and values
  • single-quoted strings
  • trailing commas
  • empty values in objects

By default, it will warn you whenever it sees one of those, but still parse it.

It also doesn't give a shit about:

  • Newlines in strings
  • Stray backslashes

You will never get warned about those. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Warnings are annoying, though, and to make matters worse, they slow the parser down - so just pass in the list of warnings you want jsom to be quiet about in the ignore_warnings parameter:

parser = JsomParser(
    ignore_warnings=[jsom.SINGLE_QUOTED_STRING, jsom.EMPTY_OBJECT_VALUE]
)

Or, if you prefer, just tell it to shut up completely, by passing in jsom.ALL_WARNINGS.
