tm_jsondecode Function

tm_jsondecode interprets a given string as JSON, returning a representation of the result of decoding that string.

The JSON encoding is defined in RFC 7159.

This function maps JSON values to Terramate language values in the following way:

JSON typeTerramate type
Objectobject(...) with attribute types determined per this table
Arraytuple(...) with element types determined per this table
NullThe Terramate null value

The Terramate language automatic type conversion rules mean that you don't usually need to worry about exactly what type is produced for a given value, and can just use the result in an intuitive way.


tm_jsondecode("{\"hello\": \"world\"}")
  "hello" = "world"
  • tm_jsonencode performs the opposite operation, encoding a value as JSON.
