JSON Functions

JSON functions are available for creating JSON data (see JSON Types).

  • array_to_json(anyarray [, pretty_bool])

    Description: Returns the array as JSON. A multi-dimensional array becomes a JSON array of arrays. Line feeds will be added between dimension-1 elements if pretty_bool is true.

    Return type: json

    For example:

    mogdb=# SELECT array_to_json('{{1,5},{99,100}}'::int[]);
    array_to_json
    ------------------
    [[1,5],[99,100]]
    (1 row)
  • row_to_json(record [, pretty_bool])

    Description: Returns the row as JSON. Line feeds will be added between level-1 elements if pretty_bool is true.

    Return type: json

    For example:

    mogdb=# SELECT row_to_json(row(1,'foo'));
         row_to_json     
    ---------------------
     {"f1":1,"f2":"foo"}
    (1 row)
