Try google "edit json files".
No seriously, not picking on you. I found this one a few days ago and
it works. https://jsoneditoronline.org/ It's an online editor. I
needed to look at the contents of one mozilla file.
Given that I'm not all that happy about the stuff google has on me, I'm
unwilling to share it with somebody else :-( I was hoping somebody had
already used something and could recommend it.
But the first hit also shows this link.
PS I'm using Duck-Duck-Go and not google.
Thanks, but neither seems to be suitable for just LOOKING at a chunk of
stuff like a spreadsheet, which is the way I used to create dBaseII
reports. I like sorting the data in different ways and then just
LOOKING at it all.
I'll keep looking.
The files that google gives you are a real nuisance. The single file
from one account had an index.html file which enabled looking at the
rest of the files (or at least the ones you can look at with firefox or
browser of choice) in a reasonably efficient way. The other account
sent me four zipfiles with NO index.html, which makes it a real pain to
wander through. I'll have to put each of the four zipfiles in its own
subdirectory -- they all unzip to the same directory name :-(
Like the rest of google, it gives you something nice, or at least
decent, and then cripples it.
Onward and upward.
