JSON file converter How to convert JSON file?

What is JSON file?


JSON is a lighter version of XML. It is an open standard format that stores data in key-value pairs. JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation and it is an open, human-readable data interchange format. JSON is used primarily to transmit data between a server and web application, as an alternative to XML. JSON was originally developed in the early 2000s by Douglas Crockford for the JavaScript programming language, but it can be used with any programming or markup language that supports basic data types such as strings, numbers, and booleans.
