Using jstree as a JSON-debugger

I was playing around with the geonames-services, and since they all return JSON-objects, I thought it’d be nice to show the results of the different services using a html-tree structure.

In javascript, it is really easy to traverse an object:

var obj = { name: 'Thomas' };

for (var key in obj) {
	alert( key + ": " + obj[key] );

This code will display an alert with the text “name: Thomas”


jstree (http://www.jstree.com) is a nice javascript tree plugin.
