jsmn is a minimalistic library for parsing JSON data format. It can be easily used in small projects or can be integrated into embedded systems.


jsmn is a good choice, beacuse:

  • it is compatible with C89
  • it uses no dynamic memory allocation
  • it has the smallest possible overhead
  • it needs only one pass to parse complete JSON data
  • it has no dependencies, even libc
  • it is distributed under MIT license, so you can use it in your proprietary projects
  • it has a simple, beautiful design

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
