SyntaxError: JSON parsing error: unexpected identifier & ldquo; object & rdquo; (anonymous function)

advertisements

I do not understand what went wrong when parsing file:

{ "t": -9.30, "p": 728.11, "h": 87.10 }

javascript code:

<script type="text/javascript">
function check() {
    $.get("http://....file.json", function(response, status, xhr) {
        if (status == "success") {
            var json = JSON.parse(response);
            $("#temp").html(json.t + "&deg;");
            $("#pressure").html(json.p + " mm hg");
        }
        if (status == "error") {
            $("#temp").html("error");
        }
    });
}

I receive error:

SyntaxError: JSON Parse error: Unexpected identifier "object"


Most probably your response is already a JavaScript object and it not required to be parsed.

Remove the line var json = JSON.parse(response); and your code should work.
