    I'm sure there's also some fancy library and/or NPM package for that.

    No way, parsing in json in js is much easier than that

    That what I usually see on my workplace legacy code

    Lol that's deffo not how you parse JSON, prob done by someone who has no idea of even basic Javascript's internals..

    Ok, looking at this closely, this is either a troll, or someone should not be allowed near a keyboard.

    I mean json.stringify( eval() ) who the fuck evals() a random sting.

    ANd then can't work our all this can be done with json.parse()

    I'd rather simply JSON.parse(); that, then use the created object...

    Yeah that's not JavaScript. Some of the variable names start with $. Someone just came from PHP writing shitty WordPress plugins and has no fucking clue what they're doing

    @AlgoRythm not true.
    Drop Jquery in and $xyz is a valid variable

    This is not a "needs more Jquery" comment 😂

    Lol no, that is not how you parse JSON in 2019. Actually, that was not how you parsed JSON in 2012 to begin with.

    Its a hacky hack made to parse what he needed with strings instead of objects because whomever wrote it is a fucking moron :D

    I feel anger towards this.
    And i also feel this anger is pretty old. Possibly the pain of wasted time ciphering through code such as this and "refactoring" it so i can continue with my life...

    We should be prepared for this in colleges just like doctors need to work on dead bodies in their training.

    @AlgoRythm oh it is most definitely Javascript brochacho. The $ got me at first but the stringify and slicing methods are 100% JS stuff. this code is the stuff of nightmares when seeing it all over the place :P PTSD made it easy to spot haha

    @AleCx04 It might *be* JavaScript, but that's no damn JavaScript.
