JSON viewer

aneron13 posted 12 months ago in Feature discussion

Hello. I think, it'll be good idea to add JSON viewer,which show it as TREE-like struct. Current time heidisql shows text columns with JSON data as plain text. This is not useful when analyzing recorded data.

Love how others are thinking the same.

In mySQL there is a DataType: JSON

The logic could be if DataType == 'JSON' OR DataType == 'LONGTEXT'

Then display a JSON viewer/formatter component.

This would make HeidiSQL an absolute God product.
