Add-On Type(s)



Provides proper JSON encoding using a template tag.

This plugin encapsulates PHP’s json_encode function.  This is very useful when making JSON feed templates.  Instead of escaping quotes using a text replacement plugin, we can now use the proper json_encode function to get the JSON encoded value of any string.

Let’s say we are making a feed that contains the 10 most recent blog posts.  Our template would look like:

	"posts": [
	{exp:channel:entries channel="blog" status="open" dynamic="no" limit="10" orderby="date" sort="desc" show_future_entries="no" }
		{ "title": {exp:json_encode}{title}{/exp:json_encode}, "summary": {exp:json_encode}{summary}{/exp:json_encode}, "page_url": "{page_url}" }{if count<absolute_results}, {/if}

Optionally, one may set the options parameter of json_encode as follows:

{exp:json_encode options="JSON_UNESCAPED_UNICODE"}{title}{/exp:json_encode}

Its a very easy to use and useful add-on, I am using that for years. Can you update this plugin to use in EE3 version too? I can’t find any such plugin in EE3.

Works great. This + HTTP Header makes ajax requests a breeze.

Works Fantastic, I spent too much time trying to figure out how to get Low_Rplace to remove extra white space - this is so much cleaner for my code.  THANK YOU!

Works great. Using it to exchange data cross-domain with other sites wrapping the output as JSONP. :)
