Formatted JSON Loader

ATTENTION: This asset will include a formatted JSON Saver once GMS: 2 stores data structures as a true data type rather than an index.

If you're like me, you hate using long JSON strings when loading in data, so I decided to create this small Formatted JSON loader. for example...

Instead of loading this...

{ "value": "string", "integer": 1 }

You are able to load this!

    "value": "string",
    "integer": 1

This not only makes it easier for you to edit JSON files but makes it easier to view files and have more control over your formatting style.


  • This script only loads in a formatted JSON file, at this point in time it does not save a formatted file but this feature may be added in future updates!

  • The script ignores TAB presses so does not require specific formatting.
