Provides a JSON printer, allowing for flexible indentation.

Installation

Run

$ composer require localheinz/json-printer

Usage

Let's assume we have a variable $json which contains some JSON that is not indented:

{"name":"Andreas Möller","emoji":"🤓","urls":["https://localheinz.com","https://github.com/localheinz","https://twitter.com/localheinz"]}

or indented with 4 spaces:

{
    "name":"Andreas Möller",
    "emoji":"🤓",
    "urls":[
        "https://localheinz.com",
        "https://github.com/localheinz",
        "https://twitter.com/localheinz"
    ]
}

but we want to indent it with 2 spaces (or tabs).

This is where Localheinz\Json\Printer\Printer comes in

use Localheinz\Json\Printer\Printer;

$printer = new Printer();

$printed = $printer->print(
    $json, 
    '  '
);

which results in $printed:

{
  "name":"Andreas Möller",
  "emoji":"🤓",
  "urls":[
    "https://localheinz.com",
    "https://github.com/localheinz",
    "https://twitter.com/localheinz"
  ]
}

💡 Note that this printer is only concerned with normalizing the indentation, no escaping or un-escaping occurs.
