This is a lenient JSON parser forked from the serde_json crate that is that is designed to parse JSON written by humans (e.g., JSON config files). This means that it supports:
- Trailing commas for object and array literals.
\xDDliteral escapes (for vertical tab and two-digit hexadecimal characters)
- [planned] Unquoted object keys (precise spec TBD).
Each such feature is switchable.
Earlier work to make
serde_json more lenient was performed
by Michael Bolin as the crate serde_jsonrc.
This crate builds on his work and updates to more recent [serde_json].
Why not make
serde_json more lenient?
The maintainer wanted to keep the
serde_json limited to strict JSON,
so we respectfully agreed that forking was the way to go.
