json-lines is a #![no_std] + serde compatible message library implementing the JSON Lines format.

High-level overview

The crate provides a Rust-language implementation of JSON Lines (JSONL), also known as Newline-Delimited JSON (NDJSON).

The wikipedia page JSON Streaming and jsonlines.org are good resources describing the format.

This crate endeavors to have a similar API to the postcard crate. This way, Rust code can easily switch between JSONL and postcard formats depending on requirements. JSONL is "self-describing" but less efficient, whereas postcard is very compact but requires an out-of-band knowledge of message structure.

The crate contains a #![no_std] implementation for use in, e.g. embedded contexts. The std feature is enabled by defaults and provides things such as the [Error] enum implements the std::error::Error Trait.

The codec feature enables crate::codec::JsonLinesCodec, which provides an implementation of tokio_util::codec::Decoder and tokio_util::codec::Encoder.
