.stringify()

The .stringify() method returns a string representation of a given JSON object. It is one of two methods that belong to the reserved JSON object, the other being the .parse() method.

Syntax

JSON.stringify(jsonObject);

The jsonObject must be valid. Otherwise, a SyntaxError is thrown.

Example

In the example below, a valid JSON object is stored in a variable, myJSONObject, and then passed into the .stringify() method as an argument:

let myJSONObject = {
Hello: 'World',
};
console.log(JSON.stringify(myJSONObject));

The output will look like this:

{"Hello":"World"}
