View JSON documents in the browser.

What is JSONView?
"JSONView" is an Edge add-on designed to enhance the viewing of JSON documents in your browser. Instead of seeing plain text when encountering "application/json", JSONView formats and highlights the document. Not only that, it allows arrays and objects to be collapsed for better readability. Interestingly, it continues to display the raw text even with errors in the document. Simply install it and observe the enhancements when viewing JSON documents.

Normally when encountering a JSON document (content type "application/json"), the browser simply shows plain text. With the JSONView extension, JSON documents are formatted, highlighted, and arrays and objects can be collapsed. Even if the JSON document contains errors, JSONView will still show the raw text. Once you've got JSONView installed, check out http://jsonview.com/example.json to see the extension in action!

一直在使用,非常好用。但是请注意,edge新版本已经自带了jsonview,如果再使用这个插件,会导致被美化的json再次被美化,会大致报这个错提示:文本非json格式。 解决办法: 1.停用这款插件。使用edge自带的jsonview 2.停用edge自带的jsonveiw。在edge浏览器输入:edge://flags/,找到jsonview,改成disable
