Try JSX - it's on GitHub can't remember the author but it's fast lightweight and pure erlang. Has a nice API and streaming support too.

It is such bad that it make so many multiple copies of strings that it has to parse and it eats up all the memory of my stack and causes the whole system to crash.  I am looking at changing the JSON parser from the current crappy implementation that I have with a good one. I have certain limitations on the Erlang Version i am using. I am using Erlang 13 B right now. Moving to the newer version of Erlang is a lot more complicated as i will have to test it first, that is like a month of work. Being in a startup i have very little time to get this done. I am seeking suggestion around good performing JSON parsers that work with Erlang 13B and are easy to integrate. Looking for C parsers needs Erlang 14B that is also complicated so i am not considering any option that wants me to upgrade the Erlang version.
