repair and parse invalid but jsonlike content

## Project description

# jsonlike [![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/shaunvxc/jsonlike.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/shaunvxc/jsonlike) [![PyPI version](https://badge.fury.io/py/jsonlike.svg)](https://badge.fury.io/py/jsonlike) ###Why? Sometimes, especially when working with JSON data from the web, you will find that the data format is not quite JSON and thus have to do a little bit of fighting with it in order to successfully call json.loads().

###Goal The goal of this package is try and provide the same functionality as json.loads() for data that looks like JSON, but doesn’t play nicely with json.loads() or other common solutions.

In its current state, it simply applies some heuristics that solve some of the common cases I’ve run into while working with not-quite json structured data. Overtime, I’d like to see it turn into something a bit more robust.

###Usage python import jsonlike jsonlike.loads(invalid_json_string)

Currently, jsonlike.loads will * strip out bad escape characters * strip out HTML content with JSON values * add missing commas * correct errors due to nested ’s

##### Strip response callback wrappers python import jsonlike jsonlike.unwrap_and_load("callback({"a": ""hello""})") # yields {"a":"hello"}  For JSON surrounded by a callback wrapper, calling unwrap_and_load will use the unwrapper library to strip away the callback, before returning loads() on the remaining content.

###Installation \$ pip install jsonlike
