Boost formal review of Vinnie Falco and Krystian Stasiowski's library JSON
starts today and will run for 10 days ending on 23 Sept 2020. Both of these
authors have already developed a couple of libraries which are accepted in
Boost(boost beast and Static String)

This library focuses on a common and popular use-case for JSON. It provides
a container to hold parsed and serialised JSON types. It provides more
flexibility and better benchmark performance than its competitors.

JSON highlights the following features in the documentation:

   - Fast compilation
   - Require only C++11
   - Fast streaming parser and serializer
   - Easy and safe API with allocator support
   - Constant-time key lookup for objects
   - Options to allow non-standard JSON
   - Compile without Boost, define BOOST_JSON_STANDALONE
   - Optional header-only, without linking to a library

(a point I would like to add in highlight: it has cool Jason logo 😝)

To quickly understand and get the flavour of the library take a look at
"Quick Look"

You can find the source code to be reviewed here:

You can find the latest documentation here:

Benchmarks are also given in the document which can be found here:

Some people have also given the early reviews, the thread can be found here:

Please provide in your review information you think is valuable to
understand your choice to ACCEPT or REJECT including JSON as a
Boost library. Please be explicit about your decision (ACCEPT or REJECT).

Some other questions you might want to consider answering:

  - What is your evaluation of the design?
  - What is your evaluation of the implementation?

  - What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?
  - Did you try to use the library? With which compiler(s)? Did you have
any problems?
  - How much effort did you put into your evaluation? A glance? A quick
reading? In-depth study?
  - Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?
