jsonlite: A Robust, High Performance JSON Parser and Generator for R

A fast JSON parser and generator optimized for statistical data and the web. Started out as a fork of RJSONIO, but has been completely rewritten in recent versions. The package offers flexible, robust, high performance tools for working with JSON in R and is particularly powerful for building pipelines and interacting with web APIs. The implementation is based on the mapping described in the vignette of the package (Ooms, 2014). In addition to drop-in replacements for toJSON and fromJSON, jsonlite contains functions to stream, validate, and prettify JSON data. The unit tests included with the package verify that all edge cases are encoded and decoded consistently for use with dynamic data in systems and applications.
