GoJSONQ provides simple, elegant and fast ODM like API to access/query JSON document.

Let's have a first look:

```go package main

import ( "fmt"

"github.com/thedevsaddam/gojsonq" )

func main() { jsonStr := `{"movies":[{"name":"Pirates of the Caribbean","sequels":[{"name":"The Curse of the Black Pearl","released":2003},{"name":"Dead Men Tell No Tales","released":2017}]}]}` jq := gojsonq.New().JSONString(jsonStr)

name := jq.Find("movies.[0].name") fmt.Println("name: ", name) // name: Pirates of the Caribbean

fsequel := jq.Reset().Find("movies.[0].sequels.[0].name") fmt.Println("first sequel: ", fsequel) // first sequel: The Curse of the Black Pearl }


Deeply nested JSON property can be grabbed easily!
