Examples

Example

The example below shows how the SAX interface is used.

#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <sstream>
#include <nlohmann/json.hpp>

using json = nlohmann::json;

// a simple event consumer that collects string representations of the passed
// values; note inheriting from json::json_sax_t is not required, but can
// help not to forget a required function
