Node.js: Parse JSON object

I am receiving a JSON object as :

http.get(options, function(res) {
res.on('data', function (chunk) {
console.log('BODY: ' + chunk);
var obj = JSON.parse(chunk);
console.log(sys.inspect(obj));
});

BODY: [{"buck":{"email":"chris@example.com"}}]


but now I'm not able to read anything inside it. How do I get the "email" field?

Thanks

Answer

You should be doing something along the lines of:

http.get(options, function(res){
    var data = '';

    res.on('data', function (chunk){
        data += chunk;
    });

    res.on('end',function(){
        var obj = JSON.parse(data);
        console.log( obj.buck.email );
    })

});

If im not mistaken.
