JSON::Name cpan:JSTOWE last updated on 2019-03-04
# JSON::Name

Provide a trait (and Attribute role) for JSON Marshal/Unmarshal where
the JSON names aren't Perl identifiers

## Synopsis

use JSON::Name;

class MyClass {
	# The attribute meta object will have the role JSON::Name::NamedAttribute
   # applied and "" will be stored in it's json-name attribute
   has $.nice-name is json-name('');



## Description

This is released as a dependency of
[JSON::Marshal]( and
[JSON::Unmarshal]( in order to
save duplication, it is intended to store a separate JSON name for an
attribute where the name of the JSON attribute might be changed, either
for aesthetic reasons or the name is not a valid Perl identifier. It will
of course also be needed in classes thar are going to use JSON::Marshal
or JSON::Unmarshal for serialisation/de-serialisation.

Of course it could be used in other modules for a similar purpose.

## Installation

Assuming you have a working Rakudo Perl 6 installation you should be able to
install this with *zef* :

    zef install .
