How to Parse JSON in JavaScript

Topic: JavaScript / jQueryPrev|Next

Answer: Use the JSON.parse() Method

You can simply use the JSON.parse() method to parse a JSON string in JavaScript.

The following example will show you how to convert a JSON string into a JS object and access individual values with pure JavaScript. It works in all major browsers.

<script>
// Store JSON data in a JS variable
var json = '{"name": "Harry", "age": 18, "country": "United Kingdom"}';
    
// Converting JSON encoded string to JS object
var obj = JSON.parse(json);
    
// Accessing individual value from JS object
alert(obj.name); // Outputs: Harry
alert(obj.age); // Outputs: 18
alert(obj.country); // Outputs: United Kingdom
</script>
