JSON Editor

JSON, or JavaScript Object Notation, is a lightweight text-based open standard designed for human-readable data interchange. It is derived from the JavaScript scripting language for representing simple data structures and associative arrays, called objects.

JSON Editor Text Mode

oXygenText mode allows you to work with JSON documents, providing standard editing capabilities such as undo / redo, copy / paste, find / replace, and drag / drop, as well as more complex ones, such as format and indent, or structure validation.

Syntax Highlight

oXygen supports Syntax Highlight for JavaScript / JSON editors and provides default configurations for the JSON set of tokens. You can customize the foreground color, background color and the font style for each JSON token type.

Structure Folding

In a large JSON document, the data enclosed between left and right brace characters can be collapsed so that only the needed data remain in focus.

JSON Editor Grid Editor Mode

oXygen allows you to view and edit JSON documents in the Grid editor mode. The JSON is represented in the Grid editor mode as a compound layout of nested tables in which the JSON data and structure can be easily manipulated with table specific operations or drag-and-drop operations on the grid components. You can customize the JSON grid appearance according to your preferences. For example, you can change the font, the cell background, foreground, or even the colors from the table header gradients.
