You can click on Network tab, select the XHR item and can get JSON in Response and Preview tabs in Chrome developer tools. Fortunately, there are quite a few free online JSON viewers that you can use. Now, BrijPad 2.0 also allows you to inspect and analyze JSON quickly. You can paste the JSON code and visualize the data. I saw many online tools but didn’t get any tool which filters JSON by selecting field in TreeView (It is very helpful in case of large JSON) so I decided to implement it and added it in BrijPad 2.0.

So, I decided to setup Microblogging platform on TechBrij and added #TechBrijTips section to share knowledge, tips, the latest news and useful resources related to web development. As it needs less time to spend on researching a specific topic, being a part time blogger, it will be helpful to increase community and reader engagements.
