jmespath - A JMESPath implementation in dart #

jmespath is a dart implementation of JMESPath, which is a query language for JSON. It will take a JSON document and transform it into another JSON document through a JMESPath expression.

This project is derived from the go port of the JMESPath, go-jmespath

Using go-jmespath is really easy. There's a single function you use, jmespath.search:

> import 'package:jmespath/jmespath.dart';
>
> var jsondata = r'{"foo": {"bar": {"baz": [0, 1, 2, 3, 4]}}}';
> var data = json.decode(jsondata);
> var search_string = 'foo.bar.baz[2]';
> var result = search(search_string, data);
> print('example1 search $search_string , result = $result');
example1 search foo.bar.baz[2] , result = 2

In the example we gave the search function input data of {"foo": {"bar": {"baz": [0, 1, 2, 3, 4]}}} as well as the JMESPath expression foo.bar.baz[2], and the search function evaluated the expression against the input data to produce the result 2.

The JMESPath language can do a lot more than select an element from a list. Here are a few more examples:

> var jsondata = r'{"foo": {"bar": {"baz": [0, 1, 2, 3, 4]}}}';
> var data = json.decode(jsondata);
> var search_string = 'foo.bar';
> var result = search(search_string, data);
> print('example2 search $search_string , result = $result');
example2 search foo.bar , result = {baz: [0, 1, 2, 3, 4]}


> var jsondata =
>     r'{"foo": [{"first": "a", "last": "b"}, {"first": "c", "last": "d"}]}';
> var data = json.decode(jsondata);
> var search_string = 'foo[*].first';
> var result = search(search_string, data);
> print('example3 search $search_string , result = $result');
example3 search foo[*].first , result = [a, c]


> var jsondata =
>     r'{"foo": [{"age": 20}, {"age": 25}, {"age": 30}, {"age": 35}, {"age": 40}]}';
> var data = json.decode(jsondata);
> var search_string = 'foo[?age > `30`]';
> var result = search(search_string, data);
> print('example4 search $search_string , result = $result');
example4 search foo[?age > `30`] , result = [{age: 35}, {age: 40}]

You can also pre-compile your query. This is usefull if you are going to run multiple searches with it:

> var search_string = 'foo.bar';
> var jmespath = Jmespath.compile('foo.bar');

> var jsondata1 = r'{"foo": {"bar": "hello"}}';
> var data1 = json.decode(jsondata1);
> var result1 = jmespath.search(data1);
> print('example5 search $search_string , result for data1 = $result1');
example5 search foo.bar , result for data1 = hello

> var jsondata2 = r'{"foo": {"bar": "world"}}';
> var data2 = json.decode(jsondata2);
> var result2 = jmespath.search(data2);
> print('example5 search $search_string , result for data2 = $result2');
example5 search foo.bar , result for data2 = world

Exception Handling #

All the functions in the library throw exception whose base class is JmesException. You can handle errors as follows :

> var jsondata = r'{"foo": {"bar": "hello"}}';
> var data = json.decode(jsondata);
> var search_string = 'avg(foo.bar)';
> try {
>   var result = search(search_string, data);
>   print('example6 search $search_string , result = $result');
> } on JmesException catch (e) {
>   print('example6 search $search_string , got exception ${e.message}');
> }
example6 search avg(foo.bar) , got exception Invalid type for hello, expected [jpType.jpArrayNumber]

More Resources #

The example above only show a small amount of what a JMESPath expression can do. If you want to take a tour of the language, the best place to go is the JMESPath Tutorial.

One of the best things about JMESPath is that it is implemented in many different programming languages including python, ruby, php, lua, etc. To see a complete list of libraries, check out the JMESPath libraries page.

And finally, the full JMESPath specification can be found on the JMESPath site.
