Native JSON viewer does not have an "Expand all" button on some JSON responses

Posted

For some reason when I view one particular JSON page the response is collapsed on page load. There are thousands of nodes so clicking them individually won't work. I can't see an "Expand all" button at the moment, but this would definitely solve the problem.

EDIT: Some JSON responses do have an "Expand all" button, but some don't? Is there a way to enable this for all?

I think I found why - there seems to be a limit hard-coded into resource://devtools-client-jsonview/components/JsonToolbar.js

/* 100kB file */ const EXPAND_THRESHOLD = 100 * 1024;

That seems to control whether the Expand button shows or not. The question is now - how can I change this to allow files up to say 1 megabyte?

I'm not aware of a way to override this 100kB limit. There is a similar limit to expand automatically when the file is loaded.

Maybe someone at Reddit or Stack Overflow knows a way.
