json: Support for serialising Haskell to and from JSON

[ bsd3, library, web ] [ Propose Tags ]

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data-interchange format. It is easy for humans to read and write. It is easy for machines to parse and generate. It is based on a subset of the JavaScript Programming Language, Standard ECMA-262 3rd Edition - December 1999.

This library provides a parser and pretty printer for converting between Haskell values and JSON.
