The ↵ character you are seeing in the JSON response is not actually present in the JSON data but is being added by the way you are displaying or printing the JSON data in the browser or console.

JSON is a data format, and it does not include any special characters like ↵ (newline/line break). The newline/line break characters are typically used for formatting and are added by the browser or console when displaying the JSON data for better readability.

If you want to remove the newline characters from the JSON response when displaying it in the browser or console, you can use the following methods:

  1. Method 1: Use JSON.stringify: When you print the JSON response in the console or display it on a webpage, use JSON.stringify to convert the JSON object to a string without any additional formatting:

    // Assuming you have the JSON data in a variable named jsonData console.log(JSON.stringify(jsonData));

    By using JSON.stringify, the newline characters will be removed, and the JSON will be displayed in a single line.

  2. Method 2: Format the JSON Output: If you want to format the JSON response for readability but without the newline characters, you can use the JSON.stringify method with a space argument:

    // Assuming you have the JSON data in a variable named jsonData console.log(JSON.stringify(jsonData, null, 2));

    The null argument is for the replacer parameter (not used in this case), and 2 is for the space parameter, indicating the number of spaces to use for indentation. This will format the JSON output with two spaces for indentation but without any newline characters.

Remember that the JSON data itself is not affected by these methods; it's just the way it is displayed or printed that changes. The JSON data remains valid and can be parsed correctly by JavaScript.

If you encounter ↵ characters in the actual JSON data itself (e.g., if they were mistakenly added during data processing), you would need to remove them before encoding the data as JSON. You can use string manipulation methods in your server-side code to clean the data before sending it as a JSON response.
