    What to use Easyjson is about the top of the pack and it's straightforward. The downside of efficient tools is that they use code generation to create the code required to turn your structs into json to minimise allocations. This is a manual build step which is annoying. Interestingly json-iterator also uses reflection but it's significantly faster. I suspect black magic.

    I think you have to parse the json, if you dont know exactly what you are looking for and want some validation und prevent manual parsing errors. For parsing big json files it is recommend to read and decode it as stream. Here is an example. If you have serious performance criteria take a look at jsoniter. It can be used as 1 to 1 replacement for standard library.

    Takes like 10 minutes to write and parses very efficiently. looks like it can provide such simple parsing
  • OjG now has a tokenizer that is almost 10 times faster than json.Decode
