How should I parse JSON using Node.js? Is there some module which will validate and parse JSON securely?



You can simply use JSON.parse.

The definition of the JSON object is part of the ECMAScript 5 specification. node.js is built on Google Chrome's V8 engine, which adheres to ECMA standard. Therefore, node.js also has a global object JSON[docs].

Note - JSON.parse can tie up the current thread because it is a synchronous method. So if you are planning to parse big JSON objects use a streaming json parser.

That response is a Map, with a single element with key '212315952136472'. There's no 'data' key in the Map. If you want to loop through all entries, use something like this:

JSONObject userJson = JSON.parse(jsonResponse)
userJson.each { id, data -> println }

If you know it's a single-element Map then you can directly access the link:

def data = userJson.values().iterator().next()
String link =

And if you knew the id (e.g. if you used it to make the request) then you can access the value more concisely:

String id = '212315952136472'
String link = userJson[id].link

The first argument passed to pgsql function json_populate_recordsetshould be a row type. If you want to use the json array to populate the existing table anoop you can simply pass the table anoop as the row type like this:

insert into anoop
select * from json_populate_recordset(null::anoop, 

Here the null is the default value to insert into table columns not set in the json passed.

If you don't have an existing table, you need to create a row type to hold your json data (ie. column names and their types) and pass it as the first parameter, like this anoop_type:

create TYPE anoop_type AS (id int, name varchar(100));
select * from json_populate_recordset(null :: anoop_type, 
        '[...]') --same as above

You can write to csv (comma-separated values) text file without any additional library. This extension open in Excel by default.

var fs = require('fs');
var file = fs.createWriteStream('file.csv', {'flags': 'w', autoClose: true});
var result = '';
for (var hashkey in myObject) 
    result += hashkey + ';' + myObject[hashkey].keyA + ';' + myObject[hashkey].keyB + 'n';

It is a Headers object. It has e.g. get and forEach methods. For example:

getDownload = async (url) => {
    const response = await fetch(url);
    return {
        name: response.headers.get('Content-Disposition'),
        length: response.headers.get('content-length')

Note the case insensitivity.
