Simple JSON Query tool


Often we find ourselves in the position to query JSON data on the fly, without having to write a full  blown application to fetch and query JSON.

I also faced the similar situation.
I searched on web for couple of existing solutions like Json Query but I needed some more flexibility like support for newer versions of the library, ability to save the code snippets etc.

I have hosted the same which can be accessed here.

Hope this helps someone.
