Create your own JSON data and save json file

Hello,

I have tried ofxJSON addon. It works fine parsing JSON data from a certain url but I would like to create my own JSON data and save as a json file under the directory “data”. Does anyone know whether it’s possible with ofxJSON?

Thanks

Here is an examples:

This is great! Thanks for making the write-up.

Thanks a lot, you show me the way on your website!

What about the alphabetical order thing? Any idea of how to handle it?

One big problem I have noticed. JSONCPP changes the order alphabetically in JSON format. I have looked into how prevent this alphabetical order but so far no luck. Not great but alternative solution might be adding index sort of number to the each element.
