It's designed to have the most intuitive API, the smallest footprint and is able to work without any allocation on the heap (no malloc).

It has been written with Arduino in mind, but it isn't linked to Arduino libraries so you can use this library in any other C++ project. For instance, it supports Aduino's String and Stream, but also std::string, std::istream and std::ostream.

ArduinoJson is a C++ JSON library for Arduino and IoT (Internet Of Things).




Here is a program that parses a JSON document with ArduinoJson.

char json[] = "{\"sensor\":\"gps\",\"time\":1351824120,\"data\":[48.756080,2.302038]}";

DynamicJsonDocument doc(1024);
deserializeJson(doc, json);

const char* sensor = doc["sensor"];
long time          = doc["time"];
double latitude    = doc["data"][0];
double longitude   = doc["data"][1];

Here is a program that generates a JSON document with ArduinoJson:

DynamicJsonDocument doc(1024);

doc["sensor"] = "gps";
doc["time"]   = 1351824120;
doc["data"][0] = 48.756080;
doc["data"][1] = 2.302038;

serializeJson(doc, Serial);
// This prints:
// {"sensor":"gps","time":1351824120,"data":[48.756080,2.302038]}

ArduinoJson is thankful to its sponsors. Please give them a visit; they deserve it!

If you run a commercial project that embeds ArduinoJson, think about sponsoring the library's development: it ensures the code that your products rely on stays actively maintained. It can also give your project some exposure to the makers' community.

If you are an individual user and want to support the development (or give a sign of appreciation), consider purchasing the book Mastering ArduinoJson β€, or simply cast a star β­.
