dojo._base.json is deprecated and included in Dojo Base for backwards compatability reasons. The dojo/json module should be used instead.


As with the rest of dojo/_base modules, if you are running the Dojo loader in legacy mode (async: false) this module is automatically loaded. Even if it is automatically loaded, you should require it in to have access to its features:

require(["dojo/_base/json"], function(json){
  // json contains the features of the module


dojo/_base/json Feature dojo/json Feature Description
fromJson() dojo/json::parse() Convert a JSON string to a JavaScript object.
toJson() dojo/json::stringify() Convert a JavaScript object to a JSON string.
