How to Validate a JSON File in Node.JS

Having the ability to validate JSON files is a great way to save yourself from a landslide of potential headaches in the future. Additionally, I’m going to save you even from the pain of setting up this solution yourself. I’ve already done it for you and packaged it up into an API. Here’s how to use it.

To begin, install our client by running this command.

npm install cloudmersive-convert-api-client --save

Next up, call validateDocumentJsonValidation.

var CloudmersiveConvertApiClient = require('cloudmersive-convert-api-client');var defaultClient = CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.ApiClient.instance;// Configure API key authorization: Apikeyvar Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';// Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)//Apikey.apiKeyPrefix = 'Token';var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.ValidateDocumentApi();var inputFile = "/path/to/file"; // File | Input file to perform the operation on.var callback = function(error, data, response) {if (error) {console.error(error);} else {console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);}};apiInstance.validateDocumentJsonValidation(inputFile, callback);

Well that was easy. Only thing left is to input our file. If you have need for more validation APIs like this one, we support quite a few different file types with other functions.
