In this segment we are going to cover about what JSON is and how we can get rid of the errors that incur while parsing JSON data, such as “QBO Unexpected Token < in JSON at Position 0.”

Save Time, Reduce Errors, and Improve Accuracy

Dancing Numbers helps small businesses, entrepreneurs, and CPAs to do smart transferring of data to and from QuickBooks Desktop. Utilize import, export, and delete services of Dancing Numbers software.

What is JSON?

JSON, which is a composition for JavaScript Object Notation, is the accepted data formats used for transferring data. It is a thin format and contains of name-value pairs. Values can be strings, arrays, or any further facts which can be published.

In the ancient days XML was firstly used for interchanging data, however afterwards JSON pop up it is often used as a substitution of XML. A JSON file needs to be ended with the .json extension.

Here we can see an illustration of a JSON format.

{

    “name”: “animals”,

    “animals”: [

        “Dog”,

        “Cat”,

        “Mouse”,

        “Pig”,

        “Bear”

  ],

  “hobbies”: {

        “football”: false,

        “reading”: true

  }

}

JSON
JSON format is quite same as JavaScript objects, however it is not always the situation. It is vital to recall that every property name should be wrapped in duplex quotes.

// not valid JSON
{
x: 4
}

// valid JSON
{
“x”: 4
}

JavaScript

Unanticipated Token < in JSON at Position 0

From every once in a while while working with JSON data, user might stumble into errors concerning JSON formatting. For instance, if user tries to parse a malformed JSON along with the JSON.parse() function or use the .json() method on the fetch object, it can outcome in a JavaScript exception being thrown. However, don’t worry, it’s not the end of the globe, and we can handle it. There can be dissimilar origin for this happening so let’s see what users can do about that.

Is My JSON Formatted Correctly?

Projects occasionally needs configuration which is sent to the client from a server. It should be mentioned, storing the presentation function as a JSON will be quicker than using an object literal, as engines need to do more steps when running an object literal than JSON.parse(), for instance. The performance differentiation of JSON vs JavaScript is not a topic of this module, so it will not be covered, however if user is interested, then you can read more about it here.

Introduction to JSON Web Tokens (JWT)

JSON Web Tokens are a useful tool and a better way of implementing authorization in web applications, however what exactly are they, and how do they work?

If you have a file with data of JSON, one of the primary things to do is to secure that the data is formatted accurately. Below are few websites mentioned which might assist you with that. These configurations not only will examine if the JSON is configured precisely, however they can also fix few of the errors, enhance it, or build it dense.

To be honest, one of the mistakes I am often guilty of myself is using single quotes in place of double quotes. The image mentioned-below shows how a format checker can make the user’s life easier.

If the JSON is formatted accurately, here it is time to verify what else happened incorrect.

My JSON is Formatted Correctly – What Next?

Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0” is one of the fault which users have perceived in the bulk at the time of operations as similar to as a software developer. Quite often which happens in a situation while fetch function is used for sending an API request from a client. After receiving a response from the server, normally it is inspected to JSON.

Fetch(‘url’).then(response => response.json())

JavaScript

The starting thing to do in this situation is to certify where the error is happening precisely. To verify the fault arise on the exact line users believe it does, users can shroud the JSON parsing code in an attempt catch block. Scrutinize the code which is given below.

Fetch(“url”).then(async response => {
try {
const data = await response.json()
console.log(‘response data?’, data)
} catch(error) {
console.log(‘Error happened here!’)
console.error(error)
}
})

JavaScript

If this is the sinner, then it will be clearly evident in the developer tools comfort, as “Error happened here!” will be displayed. Or else, you might have required to view for it somewhere else. A fine idea is to sometimes comment out code piece by piece to see when an error stops being thrown. Users can also use an early return statement.

The upcoming step is to examine if the data we are expecting to look is actually being sent from the server. As it’s visible on the below given image, head to the “Network” tab in DevTools, find the request, and click on the “Response” tab.

In this illustration, we can notice a JSON string sent from the swapi API, so it is correct. However, in a dissimilar case, the response could be in the XML format or the server could have sent an HTML file. The former could happen if you are dealing with a server which can return non-identical responses depending on the content-type header provided. If this is the case, while users send a request, make sure you specify the content-type header as given below:

fetch(‘url’, {
method: ‘GET’,
headers: {
‘Content-Type’: ‘application/json’
}
}).then(response => response.json())

JavaScript

As for the closing, we have notice the server sending an HTML file on a little instance. Generally, a source for this was an inaccurate URL provided to the delivery method, or the API server route was not set up precisely. For example, if you have a Single Page Application and a backend running Express.js server, it may be set up to consistently serve an index.html file. Thus, always cross-check the URLs and API routes configuration.

Why Unexpected Token Error Occurred QuickBooks Online?

Users can also try to log in to the account using a different browser which can be the Mozilla, Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer.
