FracturedJson

FracturedJson is utility that formats JSON data producing user-readable but fairly compact output. Arrays and objects are written on single lines if they're short enough and not too complex; otherwise their contents are presented indented, beginning on lines of their own. If a collection of inline arrays or objects are sufficiently similar and there's enough room, they will be aligned in a tabular arrangement.

It is available as a browser page, a .NET Standard 2.0 library, a Javascript package, and a Visual Studio Code extension.

Here's a sample of output using default settings:

{
    "SimpleArray": [
          2,   3,   5,   7,  11,  13,  17,  19,  23,  29,  31,  37,  41,  43,  47,  53,  59,  61,
         67,  71,  73,  79,  83,  89,  97, 101, 103, 107, 109, 113
    ],
    "ObjectColumnsArrayRows": {
        "Katherine": ["blue"      , "lightblue", "black"       ],
        "Logan"    : ["yellow"    , "blue"     , "black", "red"],
        "Erik"     : ["red"       , "purple"                   ],
        "Jean"     : ["lightgreen", "yellow"   , "black"       ]
    },
    "ArrayColumnsObjectRows": [
        { "type": "turret"   , "hp": 400, "loc": {"x": 47, "y":  -4}, "flags": "S"   },
        { "type": "assassin" , "hp":  80, "loc": {"x": 12, "y":   6}, "flags": "Q"   },
        { "type": "berserker", "hp": 150, "loc": {"x":  0, "y":   0}                 },
        { "type": "pittrap"  ,            "loc": {"x": 10, "y": -14}, "flags": "S,I" }
    ],
    "ComplexArray": [
        [19,  2],
        [ 3,  8],
        [14,  0],
        [ 9,  9],
        [ 9,  9],
        [ 0,  3],
        [10,  1],
        [ 9,  1],
        [ 9,  2],
        [ 6, 13],
        [18,  5],
        [ 4, 11],
        [12,  2]
    ]
}

If enabled in the settings, it can also handle JSON-with-comments (which isn't real JSON).

{
    /*
     * Multi-line comments
     * are fun!
     */
    "NumbersWithHex": [
          254 /*00FE*/,  1450 /*5AA*/ ,     0 /*0000*/, 36000 /*8CA0*/,    10 /*000A*/,
          199 /*00C7*/, 15001 /*3A99*/,  6540 /*198C*/
    ],
    /* Elements are keen */
    "Elements": [
        { /*Carbon*/   "Symbol": "C" , "Number":  6, "Isotopes": [11, 12, 13, 14] },
        { /*Oxygen*/   "Symbol": "O" , "Number":  8, "Isotopes": [16, 18, 17    ] },
        { /*Hydrogen*/ "Symbol": "H" , "Number":  1, "Isotopes": [ 1,  2,  3    ] },
        { /*Iron*/     "Symbol": "Fe", "Number": 26, "Isotopes": [56, 54, 57, 58] }
        // Not a complete list...
    ],

    "Beatles Songs": [
        "Taxman"        ,  // George
        "Hey Jude"      ,  // Paul
        "Act Naturally" ,  // Ringo
        "Ticket To Ride"   // John
    ]
}
