Drew Hood's Review of Json EditorReviewed on 4/21/20 1:41 PM
I’m using this app currently to build and edit several rather large (several hundred line) JSON files for a development project. Overall it’s pretty good. It helps visualize the structure of the file really well, and editing is very simple. My only request is multiple selections. In my use case, I find my self changing structures sometimes which means moving rows to different areas of the structure while maintaining their order. Because I often have to move around many rows at once, I have to do them one by one, as I cannot shift+select multiple items at once. Adding that functionality would probably shave a solid hour off my work.

I need to grapple with JSON files: review them, check them against a spec, design them, document the designs, etc, etc. This app is perfect for me, allowing me to quickly see how a new JSON is laid out, searching for things, digging deep when I need to. I’m very glad I spent $5 on it, I’ll be using it every day now. I strongly recommend this app if you do any work with JSON objects and files; it is quick, clean, efficient, powerful.

I’m an iOS developer and that means I spend a lot of time trying to make sense of JSON responses from RESTful web servers. This app is an indespensable tool as it does a fantastic job of: 1 - Saving common requests I need to make, it’s just a click to switch between endpoints! 2 - Formats the JSON in an easily digestible format. This especially plays well with the new Codable/Decodable technology in Swift 4, which oftentimes reports an error such as “you have a problem at index 46 of the array”. Using JSON Editor’s JSON Document feature, I can quickly click through a UI (reminsicent of a plist editor) to see what the problem is. Also the developer is super helpful and responsive to support requests. I can’t praise this app enough!

This was just the app I was looking for to edit and validate JSON data. I looked at a lot of apps, but this one really fit the bill. It’s easy to view and edit JSON. The app quickly converts JSON between “Tree” editor and “Text” editor mode. This makes it easy to paste JSON data in text mode and then convert to tree mode for validation and viewing. The app also has a great HTTP client which is useful for interacting with REST API in the Cloud. I’d used a couple of other HTTP clients, but this app - once again - really met my needs. And, I especially like the “Beautify” button on the HTTP Response dialog of the client. That really makes it easy to quickly view the data coming from the cloud. Finally, the author does a fantastic job with support. Quickly answering questions and adding new features. Highly rated app and author!

This has been a very useful tool. Well worth the money! I have a few requests to the developer: - allow for a configurable number of spaces for the “Readable JSON”. You use 2 spaces, but some people prefer 4 or 5 - use different colors for strings versus labels. Currently, something like “existing_files”: “replace” would all be in red. Other editors have these in two different colors which makes it more readable. - if the user tries to close a file without saving, please WARN them.

I had a very large json file (almost 9 million lines) and was having a lot of trouble visualizing the structure. It loaded it up in less than 20 seconds and made visualization feasible.

The json tools are handy, and in conjunction with the HTTP client I can do a lot of quick testing on my REST services. Nice tool to have in my collection.

This app is great for working with JSON data. I have had zero problems with it. The only thing that I would like is for the app to retain my window size. I don’t want to drag it bigger every time I open a new doc or window.

I just wanted a simple JSON editor and this one works great! Even better it has HTTP support, I can see myself using that occasionally.
