[Feature Request] JSON viewer?
Is there any intention of adding some kind of JSON viewer/editor for fields which stores JSON data? Or into the Text Editor when I edit those fields?
I mean JSON editor like this i.e.: http://www.jsoneditoronline.org/
In my case, I store some array dumps in error log in database and I can imagine this would be much more comfortable way of reading JSON then just plain text. :)
Thanks for the answer.
However, I doubt one more click would be some problem for anyone.I think maybe something like this in picture? http://i.imgur.com/sIwIFUC.png
Then it would be on my responsibility to click "View JSON" button.
Anyway, please, consider this just like an idea how to make HeidiSQL even more cooler than it is. ;)
Being able to edit JSON fields (or text fields as JSON since old MySQL versions don't support native JSON type) would be much appreciated. It does not need to be expandable tree or something. Just an option to prettify the indents and syntax highlighting is enough.
DB Browser for SQLite is perfect in this regard, it gives you an option to automatically guess the text mode (text, JSON, XML) or let's you select the mode manually. It also gives you a toggle button to automatically prettify the JSON or not.
I intended to extend the grid text editor with some code highlighters in the near future. See https://github.com/HeidiSQL/HeidiSQL/issues/136#issuecomment-365400828 - talking about XML there, but JSON is also just one of the SynEdit hightlighters.
