Generates Delphi Classes based on JSON string. Just like XML Data Binding, but for JSON.
Build entirely on the RTL (no external dependencies) so it's cross-platform;
Accepts any valid JSON string, no matter how complex the object is;
Visualizes the structure of the JSON objects in a treeview;
Generates complete delphi unit (declaration and implementation), based on the JSON string input;
Automatically prefixes reserved Delphi words with "&" (ampersand);
* Blocks unit generation if the JSON string contains empty Array;
Adds support code to automatically destroy complex sub types. So you don't have to manage subobject's lifetime manually;
** Uses TArray
to represent lists;
Adds helper serialization/deserialization functions;
Serialization and deserialization results in the same JSON structure!
Automatically detects date/datetime parts and maps them to TDate/TDateTime (as long as dates are ISO8601 compliant);
Maps all numbers to Double;
Maps true/false values to Boolean;
Allows you to change property names (keys);
Allows you to change the names of the stub classes;
Supports JSON pretty print to format the input string;
Simple and responsive GUI;
*** Automatic check for update, based on ITask (Parallel Programming Library)!
It's open source! You can find the source code and binary releases on GitHub.
The program uses MadExcept to report unhanded exceptions;
If the JSON array is empty the contained type is unknown. Unit generation works only with known and supported types.
** This is because serialization of TList
*** The releases of JsonToDelphiClass (source and binaries) are public and reside on GitHub. The update unit uses GitHub's REST API to enumerate tags/releases.
Report any problems/suggestions using GitHub's facilities.
