Helpful Tools For Web Developers: JSON Generator

If you’re looking for a really cool tool for generating JSON data for your web applications, check out the JSON generator. The JSON generator is a web app that let’s you quickly and easily generate very complex JSON data structures to whatever scale your application needs. From the website:

JSON Generator has a convenient syntax. You can specify JavaScript object for template that you see in the left box. It will be cloned in infinite depth. Fields may have any name and value, but it must be valid JavaScript. Values may contain one or more template tags. When you generate the data source object to be copied several times and the place of tags will be inserted random values.

I seriously recommend you take it for a spin. To save the data, you can copy it to the clip board or reference the data as a .json file directly on the website:

Generated files are stored 30 days and their size does not exceed 150 kB. Size appears at the top right of the field with the generated data. If file size text is red – file is too large for saving on server, but you can copy it to your clipboard and save locally to *.json file.
