Build Status

A simple Foreign/JSON library based on the Purescript's RowToList feature.

Requires compiler version 0.11.6 or greater.

Usage

See the API Docs or the tests for usage.

Usage Example

I use this in my simple-rpc-telegram-bot project to read configs quickly and easily:

newtype FilePath = FilePath String
derive instance ntFP :: Newtype FilePath _
derive newtype instance rfFP :: ReadForeign FilePath

newtype Token = Token String
derive instance ntT :: Newtype Token _
derive newtype instance rfT :: ReadForeign Token

newtype Id = Id Int
derive instance ntI :: Newtype Id _
derive newtype instance rfI :: ReadForeign Id

type Config =
  { token :: Token
  , torscraperPath :: FilePath
  , master :: Id
  }

getConfig :: IO (F Config)
getConfig = liftAff $ readJSON <$> readTextFile UTF8 "./config.json"

Some more examples

You might look at some of these examples for ideas:

Warning: Maybe

This library will decode undefined and null as Nothing and write Nothing as undefined. Please use the Nullable type if you'd like to read and write null instead. Please take caution when using Maybe as this default may not be what you want.
