const_reverse_iterator nlohmann::basic_json::rbegin ( ) const

Returns a const iterator to the reverse-beginning; that is, the last element.

Illustration from cppreference.com
This function helps basic_json satisfying the ReversibleContainer requirements:
  • The complexity is constant.
  • Has the semantics of const_cast<const basic_json&>(*this).rbegin().
The following code shows an example for crbegin().
1 #include <iostream>
2 #include <nlohmann/json.hpp>
4 using json = nlohmann::json;
6 int main()
7 {
8  // create an array value
9  json array = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5};
11  // get an iterator to the reverse-beginning
14  // serialize the element that the iterator points to
15  std::cout << *it << '\n';
16 }
