json-stringify()

string json-stringify(OXN json, bool pretty = false())

Serializes a JSON (OXN) object or an atomic value (string, number, boolean) into JSON text.

The compact (unpretty) form (default) is useful for logging as it contains no line breaks.

Examples

  • json-stringify(true())true

    {
    "foo": "bar"`
    }
  • json-stringify(json-parse('[1, 2]'))[1, 2]
