digitalmars.D.learn - std.json: SkipWhitespace = false ?

reply "Peter Sommerfeld" <noreply rubrica.at> writes:
Hi Everyone!

I'm new to :D and have a small problem with std.json.

If I use parseJSON() or toJSON() all whitespaces are
removed. I would like it to have them preserved for
better readability for users.

In std.json.d various functions contain SkipWhitespace
as parameter but that is not propagated to the toplevel
functions.

Are there any strong reasons for this behavior or can
I rebuild it with SkipWhitespace = true? Or is there
another way to work around it.

Save a copy of it locally and make the changes needed. There is a new version of std.json which is waiting on changes to std.variant and review... Anyway not much will happen with the current version so this will be good anyway.

It sounds like what you really want is pretty printing from toJSON. = It's really not too hard to add, and I'd like it too. I think this will = have to wait for the new std.json, whenever we get that though.=

Agreed! Where can the version be seen which are on review ? Peter
