inlinenoexcept

Create a null JSON value. It either takes a null pointer as parameter (explicitly creating null) or no parameter (implicitly creating null). The passed null pointer itself is not read – it is only used to choose the right constructor.

Complexity
Constant.
Exception safety
No-throw guarantee: this constructor never throws exceptions.
Example
The following code shows the constructor with and without a null pointer parameter.
1#include <iostream>
2#include <nlohmann/json.hpp>
3
4using json = nlohmann::json;
5
6int main()
7{
8 // implicitly create a JSON null value
9 json j1;
10
11 // explicitly create a JSON null value
12 json j2(nullptr);
13
14 // serialize the JSON null value
15 std::cout << j1 << '\n' << j2 << '\n';
16}
