README

encoding/json GoDoc

Go package offering a replacement implementation of the standard library's encoding/json package, with much better performance.

Usage

The exported API of this package mirrors the standard library's encoding/json package, the only change needed to take advantage of the performance improvements is the import path of the json package, from:

import (
    "encoding/json"
)

to

import (
    "github.com/segmentio/encoding/json"
)

One way to gain higher encoding throughput is to disable HTML escaping. It allows the string encoding to use a much more efficient code path which does not require parsing UTF-8 runes most of the time.

Performance Improvements

The internal implementation uses a fair amount of unsafe operations (untyped code, pointer arithmetic, etc...) to avoid using reflection as much as possible, which is often the reason why serialization code has a large CPU and memory footprint.

The package aims for zero unnecessary dynamic memory allocations and hot code paths that are mostly free from calls into the reflect package.

Compatibility with encoding/json

This package aims to be a drop-in replacement, therefore it is tested to behave exactly like the standard library's package. However, there are still a few missing features that have not been ported yet:

  • Streaming decoder, currently the Decoder implementation offered by the package does not support progressively reading values from a JSON array (unlike the standard library). In our experience this is a very rare use-case, if you need it you're better off sticking to the standard library, or spend a bit of time implementing it in here ;)

Note that none of those features should result in performance degradations if they were implemented in the package, and we welcome contributions!

Trade-offs

As one would expect, we had to make a couple of trade-offs to achieve greater performance than the standard library, but there were also features that we did not want to give away.

Other open-source packages offering a reduced CPU and memory footprint usually do so by designing a different API, or require code generation (therefore adding complexity to the build process). These were not acceptable conditions for us, as we were not willing to trade off developer productivity for better runtime performance. To achieve this, we chose to exactly replicate the standard library interfaces and behavior, which meant the package implementation was the only area that we were able to work with. The internals of this package make heavy use of unsafe pointer arithmetics and other performance optimizations, and therefore are not as approachable as typical Go programs. Basically, we put a bigger burden on maintainers to achieve better runtime cost without sacrificing developer productivity.

For these reasons, we also don't believe that this code should be ported upstream to the standard encoding/json package. The standard library has to remain readable and approachable to maximize stability and maintainability, and make projects like this one possible because a high quality reference implementation already exists.

)

func (a *Animal) UnmarshalJSON(b []byte) error {
	var s string
	if err := json.Unmarshal(b, &s); err != nil {
		return err
	}
	switch strings.ToLower(s) {
	default:
		*a = Unknown
	case "gopher":
		*a = Gopher
	case "zebra":

Functions

func Append

func Append(b []byte, x interface{}, flags AppendFlags) ([]byte, error)

Append acts like Marshal but appends the json representation to b instead of always reallocating a new slice.

func AppendEscape added in v0.2.6

func AppendEscape(b []byte, s string, flags AppendFlags) []byte

AppendEscape appends s to b with the string escaped as a JSON value. This will include the starting and ending quote characters, and the appropriate characters will be escaped correctly for JSON encoding.

func AppendUnescape added in v0.2.8

func AppendUnescape(b []byte, s []byte, flags ParseFlags) []byte

AppendUnescape appends s to b with the string unescaped as a JSON value. This will remove starting and ending quote characters, and the appropriate characters will be escaped correctly as if JSON decoded. New space will be reallocated if more space is needed.

Compact is documented at https://golang.org/pkg/encoding/json/#Compact

func Escape added in v0.2.6

	// position at which it was found.
	Index int

	// This field is true when the value is the key of an object.

	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Tokenizer is an iterator-style type which can be used to progressively parse through a json input.

Tokenizing json is useful to build highly efficient parsing operations, for example when doing tranformations on-the-fly where as the program reads the input and produces the transformed json to an output buffer.

Here is a common pattern to use a tokenizer:

for t := json.NewTokenizer(b); t.Next(); {
	switch k := t.Kind(); k.Class() {
	case json.Null:
		...
	case json.Bool:
		...
	case json.Num:

		...
	case json.Array:
		...

func (t *Tokenizer) Next() bool

Next returns a new tokenizer pointing at the next token, or the zero-value of Tokenizer if the end of the json input has been reached.

If the tokenizer encounters malformed json while reading the input the method sets t.Err to an error describing the issue, and returns false. Once an error has been encountered, the tokenizer will always fail until its input is cleared by a call to its Reset method.

func (*Tokenizer) Remaining added in v0.3.6

func (t *Tokenizer) Remaining() int

Remaining returns the number of bytes left to parse.

func (*Tokenizer) Reset

func (t *Tokenizer) Reset(b []byte)

Reset erases the state of t and re-initializes it with the json input from b.

func (*Tokenizer) String added in v0.2.12

func (t *Tokenizer) String() []byte

String returns a byte slice containing the value of the json string that the tokenizer is currently pointing at.

This method must only be called after checking the kind of the token via a call to Kind.

When possible, the returned byte slice references the backing array of the tokenizer. A new slice is only allocated if the tokenizer needed to unescape the json string.

If the tokenizer is not positioned on a string, the behavior is undefined.

func (*Tokenizer) Uint added in v0.2.12

func (t *Tokenizer) Uint() uint64

Uint returns a byte slice containing the value of the json number that the tokenizer is currently pointing at.

This method must only be called after checking the kind of the token via a call to Kind.

If the tokenizer is not positioned on a positive integer, the behavior is undefined.
