JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a text-based format for storing and transporting data. The Javascript Objects can be easily converted into JSON and vice versa. For example.

//  a JavaScript object
let myObj = { name:"Ryan", age:30, city:"Austin" };

// converted into JSON:
let myJSON = JSON.stringify(myObj);
// Result: '{"name":"Ryan","age":30,"city":"Austin"}'

//converted back to JavaScript object
let originalJSON = JSON.parse(myJSON);

// Result: {name: 'Ryan', age: 30, city: 'Austin'}

stringify and parse are the two methods supported by JSON.
