Go Json Marshal Unmarshal

Go offers built-in support for JSON encoding and decoding, including to and from built-in and custom data types.

The JSON package can automatically encode your custom data types. It will only include exported fields in the encoded output and will by default use those names as the JSON keys.

You can use tags on struct field declarations to customize the encoded JSON key names. Check the definition of response2 above to see an example of such tags.

Go Json Marshal

Marshal returns the JSON encoding of v.

Marshal traverses the value v recursively. If an encountered value implements the Marshaler interface and is not a nil pointer, Marshal calls its MarshalJSON method to produce JSON. If no MarshalJSON method is present but the value implements encoding.TextMarshaler instead, Marshal calls its MarshalText method and encodes the result as a JSON string. The nil pointer exception is not strictly necessary but mimics a similar, necessary exception in the behavior of UnmarshalJSON.


Go Json Unmarshal

Unmarshal parses the JSON-encoded data and stores the result in the value pointed to by v. If v is nil or not a pointer, Unmarshal returns an InvalidUnmarshalError.

Example of Go Json Marshal Unmarshal

package main

import (
    "encoding/json"
    "fmt"
    "os"
)

type response1 struct {
    Page   int
    Fruits []string
}

type response2 struct {
    Page   int      `json:"page"`
    Fruits []string `json:"fruits"`
}

func main() {

    bolB, _ := json.Marshal(true)
    fmt.Println(string(bolB))

    intB, _ := json.Marshal(1)
    fmt.Println(string(intB))

    fltB, _ := json.Marshal(2.34)
    fmt.Println(string(fltB))

    strB, _ := json.Marshal("gopher")
    fmt.Println(string(strB))

    slcD := []string{"apple", "peach", "pear"}
    slcB, _ := json.Marshal(slcD)
    fmt.Println(string(slcB))

    mapD := map[string]int{"apple": 5, "lettuce": 7}
    mapB, _ := json.Marshal(mapD)
    fmt.Println(string(mapB))

    res1D := &response1{
        Page:   1,
        Fruits: []string{"apple", "peach", "pear"}}
    res1B, _ := json.Marshal(res1D)
    fmt.Println(string(res1B))

    res2D := &response2{
        Page:   1,
        Fruits: []string{"apple", "peach", "pear"}}
    res2B, _ := json.Marshal(res2D)
    fmt.Println(string(res2B))

    byt := []byte(`{"num":6.13,"strs":["a","b"]}`)

    var dat map[string]interface{}

    if err := json.Unmarshal(byt, &dat); err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Println(dat)

    num := dat["num"].(float64)
    fmt.Println(num)

    strs := dat["strs"].([]interface{})
    str1 := strs[0].(string)
    fmt.Println(str1)

    str := `{"page": 1, "fruits": ["apple", "peach"]}`
    res := response2{}
    json.Unmarshal([]byte(str), &res)
    fmt.Println(res)
    fmt.Println(res.Fruits[0])

    enc := json.NewEncoder(os.Stdout)
    d := map[string]int{"apple": 5, "lettuce": 7}
    enc.Encode(d)
}

Output

true
1
2.34
"gopher"
["apple","peach","pear"]
{"apple":5,"lettuce":7}
{"Page":1,"Fruits":["apple","peach","pear"]}
{"page":1,"fruits":["apple","peach","pear"]}
map[num:6.13 strs:[a b]]
6.13
a
{1 [apple peach]}
apple
{"apple":5,"lettuce":7}
