Hello nodejs experts

Is there is anything more on node js standards?  

All urls must be in lower case

Ex: /notification/sendotp

Use HTTP verbs (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE) to operate on the collections and elements.

Use GET – for retrieving single or list data

Use POST – for create data

Use PUT – for update data

Use DELETE – for delete data











URLs should include nouns, not verbs in API names. Avoid get,update,save, delete, list in API names.

Maintain singular and plural nouns for APIs.

Ex: for single image retrive – GET - /user/image

For list of images – GET – user/images

User Token must be in headers only. Not as path param or in json body

Use resource, sub-resources for relations

Ex: for user videos use - /user/videos

Put the version number at the base of your URL. /v1/user/images

Controller will have only mandatory parameter validations and sending success, error responses no business logic. Use Service and Helper files for business logic. DAO for db calls

Handle Errors with HTTP status codes

200 – OK – Everything is fine. Created, Saved, Data found

400 – Validations Failed, Missing Mandatory Params, No data found, User already exists, already voted, in valid comment, comment not allowed within a hour, invalid user, invalid video, Video not found

500 – Unknown error, Database error, ES down, timeout from third-party. …
I am trying to create a Json object in C# that I will convert to XML.   I have a repeating set of Fees that I need to add to the json object.

Here is my code so far:

root.Deal.Fees = new ExpandoObject();
List<ExpandoObject> feeArray = new List<ExpandoObject>();

foreach (DataRow ro in ds.Tables["fees"].Rows)
    root.Deal.Fees.DealFees.Fee.Description = ro["fee_type"].ToString();;
    root.Deal.Fees.DealFees.Fee.Amount = ro["amount"].ToString();

No sure what else is needed.   Supply a different example if that is easier for you.
Thank you

 The commented   ' Public Property Wlisting() As WooData does not work,
I have tried different methods of calling an array or a list but always get the same error.  The Json that come over appears correctly formed, it is the inability to get it into a class which is the problem.

The line :

  Dim WooResponse = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(Of WooCommerceData.Results)(result)

gives the following error:
Newtonsoft.Json.JsonSerializationException: 'Cannot deserialize the current JSON array (e.g. [1,2,3]) into type 'Zetsy.WooCommerceData.Results' because the type requires a JSON object (e.g. {"name":"value"}) to deserialize correctly.

To fix this error either change the JSON to a JSON object (e.g. {"name":"value"}) or change the deserialized type to an array or a type that implements a collection interface (e.g. ICollection, IList) like List<T> that can be deserialized from a JSON array. JsonArrayAttribute can also be added to the type to force it to deserialize from a JSON array.

i have a class that I am using JSON to read the data from. I am getting this error but not quite sure why when I am not seeing an array in my class

An unhandled exception of type 'Newtonsoft.Json.JsonSerializationException' occurred in Newtonsoft.Json.dll

Additional information: Cannot deserialize the current JSON object (e.g. {"name":"value"}) into type 'System.Collections.Generic.List`1[SpringAhead.Timecard]' because the type requires a JSON array (e.g. [1,2,3]) to deserialize correctly.

To fix this error either change the JSON to a JSON array (e.g. [1,2,3]) or change the deserialized type so that it is a normal .NET type (e.g. not a primitive type like integer, not a collection type like an array or List<T>) that can be deserialized from a JSON object. JsonObjectAttribute can also be added to the type to force it to deserialize from a JSON object.

I am using a JavaScript plugin called listjs.  For those that don't know about it, what it does is the following.
You configure a textbox as a search and then tag columns in a table with class names and use those names to configure the options on the listjs plugin.

The plugin will then rebuild your list allowing incremental search returns of rows have strings which match the search box values.  It mostly works, but with a hidden string which is a JSON structure it only partially works,  I can find matches for say  8 rows and when I add another character that still matches in order the 8 rows,  one or more rows disappears.

Also,  in jQuery,  I set the val() of the searchbox to what should return some rows, and it behaves as though nothing was entered.  It seems that it knows about keypress and using jQuery to plop the value in has no keypress.

Any advice on these issues would be greatlya appreciated.

Dear Experts, I'mt rying to use GO to read a json file that I have.

I'm using the following code:
package main

import (

func main() {

	b, _ := ioutil.ReadFile("/home/david/jsontest/create.jsontest.campaigns.ninja.json")

	type UserData struct {
		user_id    string
		user_email string
		user_name  string

	type campaign struct {
		domain      string
		Ssl         int64
		server_key  string
		certificate string
		bundle      string
		php_ver     string
		wp          int64
		lang        string
		start_date  string
		end_date    string
		description string
		user_data   UserData
		CampaignID  int64

	var m campaign
	err := json.Unmarshal(b, &m)
	if err != nil {
		panic (err)
	fmt.Printf("%d", m.CampaignID)

Open in new window

When I run the code however, the Result is this:
/usr/lib/golang/bin/go run /home/david/GoglandProjects/CampaignsNinja/jsontest.go
Process finished with exit code 0

Which is correct, but partial.. I'm missing the 2nd value which should be 74 (according to the  attached JSON below)

{"domain":"jsontest.campaigns.ninja","ssl":1,"server_key":"","certificate":"","bundle":"","php_ver":"5.6","wp":1,"lang":"english","start_date":"2017-02-02","end_date":"2017-03-02","description":"This is a test","user_data":{"user_id":"74","user_email":"usertest@gmail.com","user_name":"usertest"},"CampaignID":80099700}

Any Ideas why is the code behaving that way?
Hi guys,

I'm very new to Go and I'm afraif the guides regarding JSON aren't very clear.

I have the following JSON output (saved as a .json file in a certain path) the content of which is

{"domain":"jsontest.campaigns.ninja","ssl":1,"server_key":"","certificate":"","bundle":"","php_ver":"5.6","wp":1,"lang":"english","start_date":"2017-02-02","end_date":"2017-03-02","description":"This is a test","user_data":{"user_id":"74","user_email":"usertest@gmail.com","user_name":"usertest"},"CampaignID":80099700}

and the following Piece of code written in Go:

package main

import (

func main() {
	type Message struct {
		domain      string
		ssl         int
		server_key  string
		certificate string
		bundle      string
		php_ver     string
		wp          int
		lang        string
		start_date  string
		end_date    string
		Description string

	var m Message
	err := json.Unmarshal(b, &m)

Open in new window

Where b should be the path to the json file.

but as you can see, the JSON itswelf has nested fields...

My question is,
and I'm sorry if it's a long one but I really tried looking it up just can't get the concept...
How do I include the nested fields in the structure called Message and how do I read each and every value into a variable (preferably not an array but a separate variable for each value)

Hi Experts,

I'm in need of a powershell that can output to a JSON file the size of our SQL log files.

We have multiple SQL servers and we have lots of problems with transaction logs growing to ridiculous sizes so I'm hoping there is a way I can report back to save me logging onto each server every day!  

Firstly is this possible, secondly how would I go about writing the powershell?

please let me know if you need more information

Very new at javascrit and Angular but I've attempted to just duplicate my first query and I seem to be getting output from both lists but cannot figure out how to consolidate into one.

I have an SQL database which has a table with a JSON string column.  I need to attach it to an Excel database and convert the JSON string to something more readable.

I can connect to the database and get back either a view (the preferred data source) or the underlying table.  I would like to take the query that built excel view and modify the JSON column to be more user friendly.

I guess the first question is how to get to the SQL to modify it.  I don't see any show SQL commands in Excel.

I'm new to the android development. I have created an android qr-code scanner app using using Zxing Library.Now I have to send the qr data to a remote database and retrieve result and display inside the app.Kind of checking status and display the results from remote database against the qr-value. If data not present in database then it will show some text.

Suppose you have a qr-code and its value is 1234567890.Now after scanning through the scanner the value will be sent to the remote server automatically.It will check and return data will be displayed as given below.

I've been using the JavaScriptSerializer to serialize the data   in a similar BUT simpler JSON feed and using replace to tweak the feed to go from this:
[{"email":"emailaddress","given_name":"firstname","family_name":"lastname","address_line1":"address1 Road","address_line2":null,"city":"London","postal_code":"postcode","country_code":"GB")]
to this:

Can someone help me and show me how I can add the metadata  programmatically and more importantly scalable so I don't have to use the replace etc. every time?


I've just started learning python on my own and I am having trouble with creating a visualization of json data.  Basically, I am pulling data from the Kepler mission which consists of confirmed planetary systems.  For example, When I run the program, I generate a file called gcolumn.js which contains the following data. The first column contains the kepler designation of the host star while the second column contains the number of confirmed planets that are orbiting it.
['Kepler-102 ',5]
['Kepler-11 ',6]
['Kepler-122 ',5]
['Kepler-292 ',5]
['Kepler-296 ',5]
['Kepler-33 ',5]
['Kepler-444 ',5]
['Kepler-62 ',5]
['Kepler-80 ',5]
['Kepler-90 ',6]

What I want to do is create a google column chart with the kepler designations on the x axis and the number of planets orbiting a star on the Y axis.  I chose this in order to start with something simple. I've gone ahead and modified the code from google charts so that it would pull the data for gcolumn.js (that is the data from above.  Below I have pasted a copy of htm file that contains the visualization code. When I run gcolumn.py, it generate gcolumn.js which is then accessed by gcolumn.htm which is shown below. However when I run everything, the column chart does not appear.  Thanks
