/* A JSON pretty-printer class. */

// A typical JSON-writing library requires you to first build up a data
// structure that represents a JSON object and then serialize it (to file, or
// somewhere else). This approach makes for a clean API, but building the data
// structure takes up memory. Sometimes that isn't desirable, such as when the
// JSON data is produced for memory reporting.
//
// The JSONWriter class instead allows JSON data to be written out
// incrementally without building up large data structures.
//
// The API is slightly uglier than you would see in a typical JSON-writing
// library, but still fairly easy to use. It's possible to generate invalid
// JSON with JSONWriter, but typically the most basic testing will identify any
// such problems.
//
// Similarly, there are no RAII facilities for automatically closing objects
// and arrays. These would be nice if you are generating all your code within
// nested functions, but in other cases you'd have to maintain an explicit
// stack of RAII objects and manually unwind it, which is no better than just
// calling "end" functions. Furthermore, the consequences of forgetting to
// close an object or array are obvious and, again, will be identified via
// basic testing, unlike other cases where RAII is typically used (e.g. smart
// pointers) and the consequences of defects are more subtle.
//
// Importantly, the class does solve the two hard problems of JSON
// pretty-printing, which are (a) correctly escaping strings, and (b) adding
// appropriate indentation and commas between items.
//
// By default, every property is placed on its own line. However, it is
// possible to request that objects and arrays be placed entirely on a single
// line, which can reduce output size significantly in some cases.
//
// Strings used (for property names and string property values) are |const
// char*| throughout, and can be ASCII or UTF-8.
//
// EXAMPLE
// -------
// Assume that |MyWriteFunc| is a class that implements |JSONWriteFunc|. The
// following code:
//
//   JSONWriter w(MakeUnique<MyWriteFunc>());
//   w.Start();
//   {
//     w.NullProperty("null");
//     w.BoolProperty("bool", true);
//     w.IntProperty("int", 1);
//     w.StartArrayProperty("array");
//     {
//       w.StringElement("string");
//       w.StartObjectElement();
//       {
//         w.DoubleProperty("double", 3.4);
//         w.StartArrayProperty("single-line array", w.SingleLineStyle);
//         {
//           w.IntElement(1);
//           w.StartObjectElement();  // SingleLineStyle is inherited from
//           w.EndObjectElement();    //   above for this collection
//         }
//         w.EndArray();
//       }
//       w.EndObjectElement();
//     }
//     w.EndArrayProperty();
//   }
//   w.End();
//
// will produce pretty-printed output for the following JSON object:
//
//  {
//   "null": null,
//   "bool": true,
//   "int": 1,
//   "array": [
//    "string",
//    {
//     "double": 3.4,
//     "single-line array": [1, {}]
//    }
//   ]
//  }
//
// The nesting in the example code is obviously optional, but can aid
// readability.
