QuickJson is a very basic JSON parser distributed as a source-only NuGet package, which allows it to be referenced without imposing any runtime dependencies.


📦 NuGet: dotnet add package QuickJson


⚠ To use this package, your project needs to target C# 8 or later. You can ensure this by setting <LangVersion>latest</LangVersion> in the project file.

To parse a JSON string, call Json.TryParse(...) or Json.Parse(...):

// This returns null on invalid JSON
var json = Json.TryParse("{ \"foo\": [ 69, true, \"bar\" ] }");

// This throws on invalid JSON
var json = Json.Parse("{ \"foo\": [ 69, true, \"bar\" ] }");

To retrieve a nested node in the parsed JSON, use TryGetChild(...):

// May return null if the property doesn't exist
// or if the referenced node is not an object
var foo = json.TryGetChild("foo");

// May return null if the child doesn't exist
// or if the referenced node is not an array
var child1 = foo?.TryGetChild(0);
var child2 = foo?.TryGetChild(1);
var child3 = foo?.TryGetChild(2);

Alternatively, you can also enumerate all object properties using EnumerateProperties() or all array children using EnumerateChildren():

// Returns an empty enumerator if the referenced node is not an object
foreach (var prop in json.EnumerateProperties())
    var name = prop.Name; // string
    var value = prop.Value; // JsonNode
    // ...

// Returns an empty enumerator if the referenced node is not an array
foreach (var child in json.EnumerateChildren())
    // ...

In order to extract values from nodes, use TryGetNumber(), TryGetBool(), or TryGetString():

// May return null if the node contains a value of a different kind
var value1 = child1?.TryGetNumber(); // 69
var value2 = child2?.TryGetBool(); // true
var value3 = child3?.TryGetString(); // "bar"
