JSON Formatter

A JSON formatter is a tool that helps to format and structure a JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) file, making it more readable and easier to understand. JSON is a lightweight data interchange format that is used to transmit data between systems and is often used in web applications and services to transmit data in a format that can be easily read and understood by computers.

JSON formatters typically have several features, such as:

  • Indentation: Indent nested elements to make it clear which elements are contained within other elements.
  • Line breaks: Add line breaks between elements to make it easier to read.
  • Syntax highlighting: to distinguish between different parts of the JSON code
  • Data validation: to check if the JSON file is well-formed and correct.

There are various online JSON formatters available, such as Oumify.

Also, many code editors have built-in JSON formatters or have the ability to install a plugin to provide this functionality.

It's important to note that formatting the JSON code does not affect the functionality of the code, but it can help for maintenance and debugging purposes.
