About JSONFormatter.dev

The free online tool is used to format JSON data, debugging and beautify.

The best part is, all operations done in the browser, with no network calls or data exchange to the server.

JSON is the most popular format to exchange data between clients and servers.

JSONFormatter.dev

Why JSON

It's easy
all data will be enclosed in {}
supports number,string,bool data types.

JSON : JavaScript Object Notation

Let’s try to explore JSON and how we can define it. In general, JSON is a lightweight object format, is used to store data and transport over the network.

JSON stores data in the form of properties. Each property consists of key and value and enclosed with "".

Syntax

{
  "key": "value"
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Example

{
  "tool": "jsonformatter.dev"
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Rules to define JSON property names (keys)

  • Property names must be camel-cased, ascii strings.
  • The first character must be a letter, an underscore (_) or a dollar sign ($).
  • Subsequent characters can be a letter, a digit, an underscore, or a dollar sign.
  • Reserved JavaScript keywords should be avoided (A list of reserved JavaScript keywords can be found below ### Example
{
  "devTool": "Online JSONFormatter tool"
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Try it and share your feedback. I am excited about this tool and I am just started.

More tools will come as part of toolskit.dev initiative.

Hey there, web developers! If you're looking for a more efficient way to work with JSON, you should definitely give a JSON5 editor a try. With its cleaner syntax and added features, JSON5 is quickly becoming the go-to format for developers everywhere. For example, with JSON5 you can write comments directly in your code, like this:

{
// This is a comment
"name": "John",
"age": 30,
"city": "New York"
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

This makes it much easier to understand and organize your code. Plus, JSON5 also allows for trailing commas, which means you don't have to worry about accidentally leaving a comma at the end of an array or object.
