    Get JSON values quickly - JSON parser for Go

    Project mention: Is there a way to parse unstructured data? | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-11-27

    That’s because Go is a statically typed language. If you want to easily access the data, you need to know the structure, if you don’t know the structure, then you’re going to have to jump through hoops to get at the data. I would probably try using https://github.com/tidwall/gjson if I were you.
