JSON Editor with Treeview needed
« on: September 22, 2020, 04:10 AM »
Good day fellas!

I am in need for a qualified JSON Viewer and Editor that offers a Treeview.

On my research I did found UltraEdit, Visual Studio Code with Plugin, Notepad++ with Plugin, JSON Viewer from Mitec.
All of those looking good, but I did not tested any of them yet.

Thats why I started this topic to learn from your experience for/with such fileformat.

My main aspect is to have a functional Treeview where I simply can doubleclick to open Edit (doesnt have to be exactly like I wrote, but in a manner like that)


Please share your wisdom with me!
Screenshots that demonstrate Treeview/Edit for your suggestion are very welcome to ease decission.


@moderator: Sorry if I posted in wrong sub-forum. Feel free to move!
sorry bad english and Delphi are my hobby ;)
politeness is not one of my strengths in writing, just because it sounds rough doesn't mean that I mean it rough.

VS Code has extensions that will do it.

eg. JSON Tree View

VS Code is pretty much replacing every editor I have :-\ ;)

I feel that.  Well, other than visual studio.  For some strange reason I can't get into debugging code in VS Code.

FYI the link in your app's About box leads to a 404.

Test-Results for MassJsonEditor:
It needs ages to load my file, for about 1.5mb continued data [1 block/node] I have to wait over 10 minutes.
Okay, after it loaded my data, I can't Edit because it say "Json Error" as a red line.
In other Json Tools I can load without errors.
Maby not Unicode compatible? Or memory problems for bigger files?
Anyway, when it works, it do good! (I've tried with much smaller files too)
But for my current need I have to skip this piece.

VSC I wanted to avoid because it's online dependency while installing needed plugins.

Yes, it's probably not unicode compatible.  And as it didn't seem to get much use, I didn't revisit the speed.  I'd just made it for editing the JSON in a directory of files, and the files were all small.  Sorry it didn't work for you... I might try to see if I can thread the loading to speed it up.
