When trying to add to eclipse, installer tries the a URL that returns 404 NOT FOUND ERROR!!

FIX please!

No problem installing the plugin with the drag and drop feature.

When formatting, the formatted file is automatically saved. This is a behaviour that is not consistent with how e.g. Java formatting behaves.

Saving after formating ... Still the case, not saving would be great !
And "*.json" files were still opened with JavaScript Editor, default had to be changed in Eclipse preferences. Not a big deal ...

java.io.IOException: bitbucket.org /denmiroch/jsontools/src/default/JsonSite/ is not a valid repository location.

Instead I had to use the "raw" view of site.xml:
Help -> Install New Software... -> [Add] button
https:// bitbucket.org /denmiroch/jsontools/raw/ae2e9d683249ef989d940b441e00b74df729164c/JsonSite/site.xml

This appears to be a common issue with this plugin

The current update site (---) as managed by the Atlassian tools can not be used by Eclipse 4.5 (Mars). When Eclipse tries to load the site.xml file, instead of getting the actual XML content, it's getting an unparseable mess of HTML. To see this in practice, use wget to load ---/site.xml and then look at the resulting site.xml file.

Manual installation (as described here: ---) should still work.

I can not install this plugin. The followin messages are shown:

Unable to read repository at https ://bitbucket.org/denmiroch/jsontools/default/JsonSite/
https ://bitbucket.org/denmiroch/jsontools/default/JsonSite/ is not a valid repository location.

Go to https ://bitbucket.org/denmiroch/jsontools/wiki/Home and use the manual installation instructions; the update site is hosed by BitBucket at the moment.

Please mention command to format the JSON text or file.

Nice plugin but it only supports one JSON in .json file :(
I know only one json should be in one file but I have multiple JSONS in a file...
When I try to reformat my JSON it format first json and deletes the rest ;D That's a bummer ;(

Anyway this plugin works and is super fast 5/5

Json Tools is better than JSON Editor Plugin. It shows index for array items and long HTM inside strings is processed correctly. Also it s much quicker and more responsive. I started using in Eclipse Luna and Enide Studio 2014.

As you said, this tool is more stable than JSON Editor.
