JSON is a lightweight and popular data-interchange format used widely in a large number of web/mobile apps. Today I'd like to introduce a simple jQuery plugin which converts the JSON data into a collapsible hierarchical tree view to visualize your JSON data in a pretty way.

How to use it:

1. Load the jjsonviewer.css in the header for basic styles.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/jjsonviewer.css">

2. Create an empty container element to output the JSON tree view.

<div id="jjson" class="jjson"></div>

3. Prepare your JSON data.

var jjson = '{ 
  "name": "jJsonViewer","author": { 
    "name": "Shridhar Deshmukh", 
    "email": "[email protected]", 
    "contact": 
      [{
        "location": "<span>office</span>", 
        "number": 123456
      }, 
      {
        "location": "home", "number": 987654
      }] 
    } 
}';

4. Call the plugin to format the JSON data and to display them in colors.

$("#jjson").jJsonViewer(jjson);

5. Available options.

$("#jjson").jJsonViewer(jjson,{expanded: true});
