Features and limitations

Generally, this library tries to mimic the reference implementations, except for the filtering. Evaluated filtering expressions (e.g. $..book[?(@.price<10)]) support is limited. Instead, use the callback-kind of filters.

/// Select all elements with price under 20
final path = JsonPath(r'$.store..[?discounted]', filters: {
'discounted': (match) =>
    match.value is Map && match.value['price'] is num && match.value['price'] < 20
});
