Read and parse a JSON file synchronously


NPM version Build Status Build status Coverage Status Dependency Status devDependency Status

A Node module to read and parse a JSON file synchronously

const readJsonSync = require('read-json-sync');

readJsonSync('package.json'); //=> {name: 'read-json-sync', version: '1.0.0', ...}

Node's built-in require can do almost the same thing, but this module doesn't cache results.


Use npm.

npm install read-json-sync


const readJsonSync = require('read-json-sync');

readJsonSync(filePath [, options])

filePath: String (path to a JSON file)
options: Object (fs.readFile options)
Return: Object (parsed JSON data)
