How to create JSON from a dictionary in Swift 4?

I have a JSON snipped which needs to be added as the body when I open a websocket.


sender: "", recipients:"", data: { text: "Test Message" },

So using Swift I did the following,


var messageDictionary : [String: Any] = [ "sender": "", "recipients":"", "data": [ "text": "Test Message" ], ] do { let jsonData = try messageDictionary, options: .prettyPrinted) let jsonString = String(data: jsonData, encoding: String.Encoding.ascii) socket.write(string: jsonString!) print(jsonString) } catch { print(error.localizedDescription) }

When I print the jsonString, I get


Optional("{n "sender" : "",n "data" : {n "text" : "Test Message"n },n "recipients" : ""n}")

as the console output. I expected the above snippet to be formatted as JSON. How to get the output as normal JSON without the /n and additional spaces? Im using Swift 4 and Xcode 9.1

Edit 2:


let jsonData = try messageDictionary, options: []) let decoded = try JSONSerialization.jsonObject(with: jsonData, options: [])

I tried doing the above and I get the following as the output:


{ data = { text = Test Message; }; recipients = ""; sender = ""; }

However the websocket expects this:


{ "sender":"","recipients": [""],"data":{"text":"Test Message"}}

Even with a slight variation like misplacing of double quotes the websocket server doesnt accept the input. How to exactly format the JSOn this way so that the websocket can accept it?
