Thin wrapper around PHP's json_encode() and json_decode() functions, which throws exceptions when an operation fails.

Required PHP Version

  • PHP 7.0+


$ composer require daverandom/exceptional-json


Call the \ExceptionJSON\encode() and \ExceptionJSON\decode() functions in exactly the same way as you would with json_encode() and json_decode(). The only difference is that they will throw an exception if the operation fails.

Also defines json_try_encode() and json_try_decode() in the root namespace if they don't already exist, these are simply aliases of their namespaced counterparts.

$encoded = \ExceptionJSON\encode($data);
$decoded = \ExceptionJSON\decode($encoded);
