Edit JSON In A Form Modal Window - jQuery JSON UI

A jQuery-powered JSON editor converts JSON data into an HTML form, where you can add/remove/edit JSON in a fast way.

It allows a user to edit single or multiple fields of JSON data using a form modal. Once a field has been edited, the user can click on a "Save" button to save the data back to the location where the original JSON was stored.

How to use it:

1. Load the required jQuery and jQuery UI (for draggable dialog) in the document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/cdn/jquery-ui.min.css" />
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

2. Insert your JSON data into a textarea element.

<textarea id="demo">
  ... JSON Here ...
</textarea>

3. Download and load the JSON UI plugin after jQuery.

<link href="plugin/json-ui.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script src="plugin/json-ui.jquery.js"></script>

4. Initialize the plugin on the textarea. That's it.

$(function() {
  $("#demo").jsonFormEditor("init");
});
