JSON Editor is a must-have editor for JSON data. In a clean, uncluttered and user-friendly interface, it allows you to quickly create, visualize, modify, validate, format and save your JSON documents.
Along with the included HTTP Client, is a powerful tool to inspect and debug your API endpoints.

KEY FEATURE - JSON EDITOR

• Edit JSON documents both in tree and text modes.
• Multiple selection in tree mode - you can select multiple siblings and perform standard operations (i.e. copy, drag and drop etc) on them.
• Syntax coloring, auto-indentation and line numbers.
• Validation of the JSON document.
• Highlight of the validation errors, along with a description of them.
• Make the JSON document human readable or compact, even if it is not entirely valid
• Auto-detect if the document is human readable or compact, and preserve this format
• Cut, copy, paste, delete and reorder the tree items.
• Copy & paste for JSON text.
• Undo & redo.
• Easily embed selected items in Array or Object (dictionary).
• Full support for Find & Replace, both in tree and text modes.
• In tree mode you can choose where the Find (and Replace) will take place: in "Key" column or "Value" column or both. The option which controls which columns will be searched is available by clicking the "search" image in the find bar (Command + F) and then accessing the options from "Find In" submenu.
• Find also lets you configure where in the JSON's keys and values to look for matches: "Contains", "Equals To", "Starts With" and "Ends With".
• Import and export property list (.plist) files.
• Support for pasting plist data, either from XML text or from Xcode.
• Copy JSON nodes as Swift objects so you can use them in Xcode.
• Copy JSON nodes as Objective-C objects (both modern and classic syntax) so you can use them in Xcode.
• Copy JSON nodes as JSON Path strings.
• Copy JSON nodes as XML plist so you can paste them in Xcode or other text editor.
• "Add" and "Remove" buttons on the tree row which is tracked by mouse.
• Ability to change the default font (both font family and size)- this font applies both to the JSON tree and to the text editor.
• Ability to increase and decrease font size for better readability.
• Full screen support.
• Versions support.
• Services support.
• Detect when the JSON document is changed by another application. In Preferences (Command + ,) -> "General" tab, you have the ability to customize what to do when this happens: "Keep JSON Editor's version" or "Ask how to resolve" or "Update to modified version".
• Double click on one of JSON tree's column separators to resize the corresponding column so the largest text in that column will be visible.

KEY FEATURE - HTTP CLIENT

• To open HTTP Client window choose "Window -> HTTP Client" (Shift + Command + K)
• HTTP Client allows you to easily perform HTTP requests. While its main purpose is to ease the fetch of JSON content from a server, it can be used to get or upload any content, including binary. The following HTTP verbs are supported: GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, HEAD.
• You can create folders to group the HTTP requests. Folders inside folders are supported, too! This feature is very handy to group the projects or APIs you're working with.
• Automatically detects if response body is text or binary, and for binary responses will shows its preview, while also allowing you save it to the desired file.
• For response bodies which are text, you will have the option to beautify them as JSON and to open them in a new JSON Editor document.
• Both HTTP authentication (basic, digest) and Proxy authentication, with Keychain integration, are supported.
• OAuth 2.0 is also supported. In addition to the built-in providers (bitly, Facebook, Foursquare, GitHub, Google, Instagram) you may add your custom ones, too.
• Once you have added and setup an OAuth 2.0 authorization you can attach it to a HTTP request - JSON Editor will take care of refreshing and attaching access token to the HTTP request.

What's New

Improvements
• Removes the occassional reminder to rate the application. Because it's cheesy.
• Stability improvements and other under the hood changes.

Introduced in Version 1.18

Improvements
• Find is enhanced with the following options which configure where in the JSON's keys and values to look for matches: "Contains", "Equals To", "Starts With" and "Ends With". These options are available by clicking the "search" image in the Find bar (Command + F).
• You can add custom OAuth 2 authorization providers, in addition to those which are already included.
• Adds option to disable the Auto Save (and Version). This is available in Preferences (Command + ,) in "Open and Save" tab. By disabling Auto Save you get back the old behavior of Mac OS X where you are prompted to save the open files before quitting the application. Additionally, the documents won't be reopened when JSON Editor is started again.
• The expressions "Raw JSON" and "Raw JSON Editor" have been changed to say "JSON Text" and "JSON Text Editor", respectively. These new forms are more clear and pair nicely with their counterparts "JSON Tree" and "JSON Tree Editor".

Bug fixing
• HTTP response's body (if any) is now displayed if the HTTP status code is 401 or 407. Previously it was not displayed.

Introduced in Version 1.17

Improvements
• Now you can choose where the find (and replace) will take place in the JSON tree: in "Key" column or "Value" column or both. The option which controls which columns will be searched is available by clicking the "search" image in the find bar (Command + F) and then accessing the options from "Find In" submenu.
• Adds support to detect when the JSON document is changed by another application. In Preferences (Command + ,) -> "General" tab, you have the ability to customize what to do when this happens: "Keep JSON Editor's version" or "Ask how to resolve" or "Update to modified version".
• Double click on one of JSON tree's column separators will resize the corresponding column so the largest text in that column will be visible.
• Each document window now preserves the width of JSON tree's columns between application's relaunches. This preservation is done until you explicitly close the window.
• Application's Preferences (Command + ,) now supports setting the default width and height for the JSON document window. This is available in "General" tab, under "Defaults for document windows you're gonna open or create:"
• Application's Preferences (Command + ,) now supports setting the default width for JSON tree's "Key" and "Type" columns. This is available in "General" tab, under "Defaults for document windows you're gonna open or create:"
• Both the default size of document window and the width of the columns can be visually set by using the sample window shown after pressing "Get from Sample Window..." from application's Preferences (Command + ,) -> "General" tab.
• If you want the document windows which are already open to have the default size and default width of the columns that you set in Preferences then you can use "Update Open Windows to Defaults" button from "General" tab.

Bug fixing
• Fixes a crash which happened when adding a new OAuth 2.0 Authorization.

Introduced in Version 1.16

Bug fixing
• Fixed a crash which happened when using "Open in JSON Document" from HTTP Client or "New JSON Document Containing Selection" from Services menu.
• Fixed a crash which happened when closing a window which had the search bar visible, on macOS 10.12 (Sierra).
