Deserializes a given input i to a JSON value using the UBJSON (Universal Binary JSON) serialization format.

The library maps UBJSON types to JSON value types as follows:

UBJSON type JSON value type marker
no-op no value, next value is read N
null null Z
false false F
true true T
float32 number_float d
float64 number_float D
uint8 number_unsigned U
int8 number_integer i
int16 number_integer I
int32 number_integer l
int64 number_integer L
high-precision number number_integer, number_unsigned, or number_float - depends on number string 'H'
string string S
char string C
array array (optimized values are supported) [
object object (optimized values are supported) {
The mapping is complete in the sense that any UBJSON value can be converted to a JSON value.
[in]ian input in UBJSON format convertible to an input adapter
[in]strictwhether to expect the input to be consumed until EOF (true by default)
[in]allow_exceptionswhether to throw exceptions in case of a parse error (optional, true by default)
deserialized JSON value; in case of a parse error and allow_exceptions set to false, the return value will be value_t::discarded.
parse_error.110if the given input ends prematurely or the end of file was not reached when strict was set to true
parse_error.112if a parse error occurs
parse_error.113if a string could not be parsed successfully
Linear in the size of the input i.
The example shows the deserialization of a byte vector in UBJSON format to a JSON value.
1#include <iostream>
2#include <iomanip>
3#include <nlohmann/json.hpp>
5using json = nlohmann::json;
7int main()
9 // create byte vector
10 std::vector<uint8_t> v = {0x7B, 0x69, 0x07, 0x63, 0x6F, 0x6D, 0x70, 0x61,
11 0x63, 0x74, 0x54, 0x69, 0x06, 0x73, 0x63, 0x68,
12 0x65, 0x6D, 0x61, 0x69, 0x00, 0x7D
13 };
15 // deserialize it with UBJSON
18 // print the deserialized JSON value
19 std::cout << std::setw(2) << j << std::endl;
