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>
