JSON Plugin for Smarty

This is a simple plugin for Smarty to retrieve and parse JSON data into an object in Smarty. Requires the PECL JSON.php class or PHP 5.2.0.


  1. If your PHP version is < 5.2.0 and save it to your include path if it is not already there. If your PHP version is >= 5.2.0, this class is not needed, we will use the native function.
  2. Download the JSON Smarty Plugin PHP Function File (shown after the fold) as function.json.php in your smarty\plugins\ directory.

JSON Plugin Usage in Smarty Templates Files:


The $result variable now contains the parsed JSON data.
