How To Convert Json To Array In Laravel

Hello Devs,

Today I will show you how we can convert JSON to array in laravel. There are several methods used to convert JSON to ARRAY. 
This post will give you a simple example that how we can convert a JSON object to an array.

I  will try to explain it in a simple way. In this post, I will use 2 ways to convert the JSON to an array.
In first example I will use simple php method json_decode(). In the second method, I will json() method to convert JSON to an array over an HTTP response.
You can try these methods on any version of Laravel. I have tested it on Laravel 9. 
First of all, I created DemoController and 2 routes to show you examples.

Example 1 : json_decode() method 

app/Http/Controllers/DemoController.php

json_decode_mehod function in controller.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Http;

class DemoController extends Controller
{
    public function json_decode_mehod() {

        $json_data = '{
            "userId": 1,
            "id": 1,
            "title": "sunt aut facere repellat provident occaecati excepturi optio reprehenderit",
            "body": "quia et suscipit\nsuscipit recusandae consequuntur expedita et cum\nreprehenderit molestiae ut ut quas totam\nnostrum rerum est autem sunt rem eveniet architecto"
        }';

        $data = json_decode($json_data, true);
       print_r($data);    
 }    

  } 

In this example, I am using the json_decode() method to convert the JSON string to an array. You can also use this method in the code PHP and other PHP frameworks.
OUTPUT:

Array
(
    [userId] => 1
    [id] => 1
    [title] => sunt aut facere repellat provident occaecati excepturi optio reprehenderit
    [body] => quia et suscipit
suscipit recusandae consequuntur expedita et cum
reprehenderit molestiae ut ut quas totam
nostrum rerum est autem sunt rem eveniet architecto
)

 

Example 2 : json() methhod

app/Http/Controllers/DemoController.php

json_mehod function in controller.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Http;

class DemoController extends Controller
{

    public function json_method() {
        $response = Http::get('https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts/1');
        
        print_r($response->json());
    }

}

In this example, I am using an HTTP request to fetch the JSON object from the URL.
Then I use json() method to convert the response to the array.

OUTPUT : 

Array
(
    [userId] => 1
    [id] => 1
    [title] => sunt aut facere repellat provident occaecati excepturi optio reprehenderit
    [body] => quia et suscipit
suscipit recusandae consequuntur expedita et cum
reprehenderit molestiae ut ut quas totam
nostrum rerum est autem sunt rem eveniet architecto
)
