I had mentioned in very short in past about Notepad++ here and hinted some about macros in Notepad++. Following is short desc about plugins in Notepad++.
As you see above Notepad++ has tons of plugins to make a programmers life easy. Well I needed to view and format a JSON. Now it is simple to view and understand a JSON if it is very small but the huge ones require some viewer like above. So here is what I did just looked for a JSON viewer in the Plugin Manager, installed it to Notepad++(needs a notepad++ restart after that), then just paste the json in the notepad++ and hit the menu Plugins -> JSON viewer -> Show JSON viewer and there it was!. JSON the way i wanted to see it.
