JSON Viewer With Path Selection - JSON Path Picker

A jQuery based JSON viewer & path picker to render your JSON data in a tree structure where you can get the path to each key by clicking on the output icon.

More features:

  • Collapsible nodes.
  • Keys with/without quotes.
  • Dot or Bracket notation in the path.
  • Allows you to replace keys using Regx.
  • Syntax highlighting.

How to use it:

1. Download and insert the JSON Path Picker's files into the HTML document.

<link href="/path/to/json-path-picker.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/json-path-picker.js"></script>

2. Create a pre element to hold the JSON tree.

<pre id="myTree"></pre>

3. Create an input filed to display the key path output.

<input id="path" type="text">

4. Call the function on the pre element and pass the JSON data and output selector as follows.

var myData = {
    // your JSON data here

$('#myTree').jsonPathPicker(myData, '#path');

5. To config the JSON path picker, pass the following options object as the third parameter to the jsonPathPicker().

$('#myTree').jsonPathPicker(myData, '#path',{

  // collapses all nodes on init
  outputCollapsed: false,

  // keys with quotes
  outputWithQuotes: false,

  // 'dots' or 'brackets'
  pathNotation: 'dots',

  // 'single' or 'double'
  pathQuotesType: 'single',

  // allows the user to process keys
  processKeys: false
