jsonFormer is an easy-to-use jQuery form generator which dynamically generates a Bootstrap styled HTML form from JSON objects you specify.

How to use it:

1. Load the needed jQuery library and Bootstrap framework in your html file.

2. Place the jQuery jsonFormer plugin's script jsonFormer.jquery.js after jQuery.

<script src="jsonFormer.jquery.js"></script>

3. Prepare your Form data as these:

<textarea id="jsonEditor" class="form-control input-lg" >{
  "pendingRemovals_": {},
  "dispatching_": {},
  "listeners_": {},
  "revision_": 0,
  "ol_uid": 21,
  "values_": {
      "center": null,
      "rotation": 0
  },
  "hints_": [0, 0],
  "animations_": [],
  "projection_": {
      "code_": "EPSG:3857",
      "units_": "m",
      "extent_": [-20037508.342789244, -20037508.342789244, 20037508.342789244, 20037508.342789244],
      "worldExtent_": [-180, -85, 180, 85],
      "axisOrientation_": "enu",
      "global_": true,
      "canWrapX_": true,
      "defaultTileGrid_": null
  },
  "maxResolution_": 156543.03392804097,
  "minResolution_": 0.0005831682455839253,
  "zoomFactor_": 2,
  "minZoom_": 0,
  "constraints_": {},
  "options_": {}
}</textarea>

4. Create a container element to place the generated form.

<div id="form-container"></div>

5. Generate the HTML form.

$('#form-container').jsonFormer({
  title: "Just point me at a div and pass me an object",
  jsonObject: JSON.parse($('#jsonEditor').val())
});

6. All possible plugin options.

$('#form-container').jsonFormer({
  title: 'The data you passed',
  objectTemplate: '<div id="json-object" class="panel-group"><div class="panel panel-success"><div class="panel-heading"><h4 class="panel-title"><a data-toggle="collapse" href="#collapse-1" ></a></h4></div><div id="collapse1" class="panel-collapse collapse in" ><div class="panel-body"><form class="form-horizontal json-form-inner" ></form></div></div></div></div>',
  arrayTemplate: '<div id="json-array" class="form-group row"><label class="control-label col-sm-2 col-form-label"></label><form class="form-inline col-sm-10 json-form-inner"></form></div>',
  stringTemplate: '<div id="json-string" class="form-group row"><label for="" class="control-label col-sm-2 col-form-label"></label><div class="col-sm-10"><input type="text" class="form-control" value="" id="" placeholder="key"></div></div>',
