PlistEdit Pro Help

About JSON

PlistEdit Pro also supports the editing of JSON files, a format commonly used when working with Javascript and other web technologies. You can find more detailed information about the JSON format at http://www.json.org/

The types of data that can be represented in JSON are nearly identical to those supported by plists, with the following exceptions:

  • The “Date” and “Data” data types are not supported by JSON.
  • JSON also supports an additional “Null” type, which is not supported by regular plists.

When working with JSON files in PlistEdit Pro, you can perform all the same operations that you can with regular plists, such as copy/paste, drag and drop, find/replace, and so forth. PlistEdit Pro can also be used to convert data between plist and JSON formats.
