Json library for elixir

Hey all,

Now that Phoenix comes with jason by default.
Is it still necessary to use a library like ja_serializer for building json API’s & making sure it’s compliant with json api standards?

They seem like similar libraries. Let’s just say I’m confused with the terminology since jason is described as a parser & generator, while ja_serializer is a serializer/formatter.

Jason is just for (de-)serializing elixir data <-> json. It’s basically a faster replacement for poison. It doesn’t concern itself with higher level specs like jsonapi. I doubt phoenix will ever ship with something like ja_serializer or similar.
