Changes

  • Fixed JsonVariant::operator|(int) that returned the default value if the variant contained a double (issue #675)
  • Allowed non-quoted key to contain underscores (issue #665

Changes

  • Changed the rules of string duplication (issue #658)
  • RawJson() accepts any kind of string and obeys to the same rules for duplication
  • Changed the return type of strdup() to const char* to prevent double duplication
  • Marked strdup() as deprecated

New rules for string duplication

type duplication
const char* no
char* no yes
String yes
std::string yes
const __FlashStringHelper* yes

These new rules make JsonBuffer::strdup() useless.

Changes

  • Added JsonVariant::operator| to return a default value (see below)
  • Added a clear error message when compiled as C instead of C++ (issue #629)
  • Added detection of MPLAB XC compiler (issue #629)
  • Added detection of Keil ARM Compiler (issue #629)
  • Added an example that shows how to save and load a configuration file
  • Reworked all other examples

How to use the new feature?

If you have a block like this:

const char* ssid = root["ssid"];
if (!ssid)
  ssid = "default ssid";

You can simplify like that:

const char* ssid = root["ssid"] | "default ssid";

BREAKING CHANGES

JsonBuffer::parseObject() and JsonBuffer::parseArray() have been pulled down to the derived classes DynamicJsonBuffer and StaticJsonBufferBase.

This means that if you have code like:

void myFunction(JsonBuffer& jsonBuffer);

you need to replace it with one of the following:

void myFunction(DynamicJsonBuffer& jsonBuffer);
void myFunction(StaticJsonBufferBase& jsonBuffer);
template<typename TJsonBuffer> void myFunction(TJsonBuffer& jsonBuffer);

Changes

  • Added an printTo(char[N]) and prettyPrintTo(char[N]) (issue #292)
  • Added ability to set a nested value like this: root["A"]["B"] = "C" (issue #352)
  • Renamed *.ipp to *Impl.hpp because they were ignored by Arduino IDE (issue #396)

Changes

  • Made PROGMEM available on more platforms (issue #381)
  • Fixed PROGMEM causing an exception on ESP8266 (issue #383)

Changes

  • Added support for PROGMEM (issue #76)

  • Removed ArduinoJson::String
  • Removed JsonVariant::defaultValue<T>()

  • Added example StringExample.ino to show where String can be used
  • Increased default nesting limit to 50 when compiled for a computer (issue #349)

BREAKING CHANGES

The non-template functions JsonObject::get() and JsonArray.get() have been removed. This means that you need to explicitely tell the type you expect in return.

Old code:

#define ARDUINOJSON_USE_ARDUINO_STRING 0
JsonVariant value1 = myObject.get("myKey");
JsonVariant value2 = myArray.get(0);

New code:

#define ARDUINOJSON_ENABLE_ARDUINO_STRING 0
#define ARDUINOJSON_ENABLE_STD_STRING 1
JsonVariant value1 = myObject.get<JsonVariant>("myKey");
JsonVariant value2 = myArray.get<JsonVariant>(0);

  • Fixed return value of JsonObject::set() (issue #350)
  • Fixed undefined behavior in Prettyfier and Print (issue #354)

Changes

  • Fixed JsonVariant::is<bool>() that was incorrectly returning false (issue #214)

Changes

  • Made library easier to use from a CMake project: simply add_subdirectory(ArduinoJson/src)
  • Changed String to be a typedef of std::string (issues #142 and #161)

BREAKING CHANGES

  • JsonVariant(true).as<String>() now returns "true" instead of "1"
  • JsonVariant(false).as<String>() now returns "false" instead of "0"

Changes

  • Added parameter to DynamicJsonBuffer constructor to set initial size (issue #152)
  • Fixed warning about library category in Arduino 1.6.6 (issue #147)
  • Examples: Added a loop to wait for serial port to be ready (issue #156)

  • Added JsonBuffer::strdup() to make a copy of a string (issues #10, #57)
  • Implicitly call strdup() for String but not for char* (issues #84, #87)
  • Added support of non standard JSON input (issue #44)
  • Added support of comments in JSON input (issue #88)
  • Added implicit cast between numerical types (issues #64, #69, #93)
  • Added ability to read number values as string (issue #90)
  • Redesigned JsonVariant to leverage converting constructors instead of assignment operators (issue #66)
  • Switched to new the library layout (requires Arduino 1.0.6 or above)

BREAKING CHANGES

  • JsonObject::add() was renamed to set()
  • JsonArray::at() and JsonObject::at() were renamed to get()
  • Number of digits of floating point value are now set with double_with_n_digits()

Personal note about the String class: Support of the String class has been added to the library because many people use it in their programs. However, you should not see this as an invitation to use the String class. The String class is bad because it uses dynamic memory allocation. Compared to static allocation, it compiles to a bigger, slower program, and is less predictable. You certainly don’t want that in an embedded environment!
