Is there a gui for json generator? eg a form in which i can enter first Name, LastName, Sex etc... then it generates the correct json.

    You can just type it out man, JSON is not as hard to read as XML

    I used google spreadsheets with a json export script. But that's only viable for personal manual data gathering and not something you would serve a user.

    For that you'd need a website or form service like https://www.wufoo.com/ and a database like firebase real time database.

    jsonlint.com will validate as you type in...

    {"firstname": "abc", "last
    name":"xyz", "sex":"often", "age": "99"}

    That was hard 🤷‍♂️

    You could just build a form and convert to json, I mean, you are a dev right?

    No, there is no such tool available at this time.

    Php has a json_encode function, perhaps try creating a form in that

    @alexbrooklyn wow! seting up a php instance for something that can be done in 10 minutes with client side html, css, and javascript. You like to use the big battleship canon to kill a moscito don't you? 😀

    @heyheni oh shit, I almost forgot that javascript existed for that 😅 whoops

    Btw, add blockhain, docker, k8s and a redis db to make sure the app works properly

    @C0D4 well if you can't write JSON I kinda doubt it

    @alexbrooklyn yes, because how would one write Javascript Object notation with Javascript?

    Handy for generating JSON test data:

    I tried this one and it's really easy and helpful.
    helped me generation a really long Json.

    @heyheni php setup is seconds if you download the binaries,
    open cmd/terminal

    php -a

    echo json_encode(array("firstname" => "hey", "lastname" => "heni"));

    Copy output

    I think it would have been quicker to do it then write this thing on my phone 🤦‍♂️😂

    But then opening a browser console and adding

    let arr = [ "Bob", "Marley", "Chester", "Heyheni" ];

    Could work too, I mean it's pretty intensive though.

    @C0D4 typing code on phone is the worst. I also hate it when I am talking about .NET a few times in a message because of the automatic space removal...

    @Codex404 autocomplete + random spaces are the worst when trying to write syntax on a phone.

    It's ok for small things (well it's tolerable)

    Random related tip if you are on a Mac. You can use the Xcode plist editor to make hierarchical data structures and then save as or convert them to JSON with putil

    plutil -convert json data.plist -o data.json
