Commercial

inspired by ig-json-parser. it basically do the same thing as ig-json-parser. but...

the differences are:

  • do not use annotations to generate the parsers. but use Scala raw value like:

    lazy val Tag = ObjectType("Tag", Seq(
      Field("value", "value", StringType),
      Field("category", "category", StringType)))
    • one small drawback is if you data is recursive, you need to link the recursive data outside a constructor
  • more powerful

    • you can write converter code to convert between types, so basically you can have all your stuff, so basically you can inject any code you want when parsing:
    lazy val ApiTimeStringToDate = ConvertedType(StringType, JavaObjectType("java.util.Date"), "ApiTimeStringToDate", "DateToApiTimeString")
    • can also generate enum type and map types, if you are too lazy to write the converter code
  • including a class JsonToSpec which can generate the spec from a folder of json samples. so you not even need to write the spec if you have a working backend. but most of time you will want to customize the result by editing the result spec

  • it is dead simple

    • you should be able to use it from command line, or in any build tool you use
    • you can easily customize this thing. as the code is very short
