Question

Hi I am trying to encode the bank holdiays for the year, I have managed to get a list of holidays from calendrific.com and get this as my return

[{'name':New Year's Day','date':2021-01-01','name':Good Friday','date':2021-04-02','name':Early May Bank Holiday','date':2021-05-03','name':Spring Bank Holiday','date':2021-05-31','name':Christmas Day','date':2021-12-25','name':Boxing Day','date':2021-12-26','name':Substitute Bank Holiday for Christmas Day','date':2021-12-27','name':Substitute Bank Holiday for Boxing Day','date':2021-12-28'}]

 

The way i have got is as follows:

http:request(string.format(address),{options={headers={Accept="application/json"},method='GET'},

        success = function(status)

            local data = json.decode(status.data)

            data = data.response.holidays

            for _,d in ipairs(data) do

                if cR == "" then

                    cR="[{'name':"..d.name.."','date':"..d.date.iso.."'"

                else

                    cR=cR ..",'name':".. d.name.."','date':"..d.date.iso.."'"

                end

                

                --print (d.name)

                --print(d.date.iso)

            end 

            

            cR = cR.."}]"

            --string.gsub(cR,"'",""")

            print (cR)

        end,

        error = function(error) print(error) end

    }

    )

 

my problem is that in order to json encode it properly, from what I understand, I need all the single quotes to be double quotes, but i don't know how to get the data as double quotes,

 

any help would be great.

 

Many thanks.

I don't think you have a problem with the response (the example you posted is not correct, missing matching quotes ('))

So what we see is probably after your attempt at "recoding".

Please post the raw response, what you get from

    May I suggest.

    Please login or register to see this code.

    Ok, now you have a key-value table with {date=name,...}

    You can encode it to json and store it in a variable

    fibaro:setGlobal("X",(json.encode(cR)))

     

    You can retrieve the table and quickly check if it is a holiday

    Thank you for your amazing contribution, as always spot on and ever so helpful.

     

    If I wanted to add another field to the table, how would i do that?
