Build Status

Prettify/Minify/Query JSON plugin for Sublime Text 2 & 3


Install this sublime text package via Package Control

or manual installation

  • cd <Packages directory>
  • git clone


To prettify JSON, make selection of json and press keys:

  • Linux: ctrl+alt+j
  • Windows: ctrl+alt+j
  • OS X: cmd+ctrl+j

or through Command Palette Ctrl+Shift+P find "Pretty JSON: Format (Pretty Print) JSON"

If selection is empty and configuration entry use_entire_file_if_no_selection is true, tries to prettify whole file

If JSON is not valid it will be displayed in status bar of Sublime Text

Compress / Minify JSON

Using Command Palette Ctrl+Shift+P find "Pretty JSON: Minify (compress) JSON" this will make selection or full buffer as single line JSON which later you can use in command lines (curl/httpie) or somewhere else...

./jQ query/filter usage



If on your machine "./jq" tool is available with ctrl+atl+shift+j you can run against your json. output will be opened in new view so you can once again apply jq on new buffer

You can find instructions of tool here:

Default configuration

use_entire_file_if_no_selection - true

indent - 2

sort_keys - false

ensure_ascii - false

Using tabs for indentation

You can change configuration key indent to string value "\t" or any other string

"indent" : "\t",

Be sure "Indent Using Spaces" is unchecked otherwise you will not see effect and ST2/3 will convert it back to spaces
