Last spring some colleagues and I wrote a properly streaming Json parser
that could incrementally emit Json primitive values as its fed bytestrings.
There's some Corner cases that come up wrt how atto parsecs float
parser parses 0.0 as two different zero literals depending on how it's
split between chunks, but that aside its a pretty simple stack machine
implementation that worked out pretty well
