Hackolade is a visual editor for JSON Schema for non-programmers. It is ideal to perform the upfront schema design of any type of JSON document Since v5 of Hackolade, the latest JSON Schema specifications are supported:
Hackolade was specially adapted to support the data modeling of JSON files.
- A collection of name/value pairs. In various languages, this is realized as an object, record, struct, dictionary, hash table, keyed list, or associative array.
- An ordered list of values. In most languages, this is realized as an array, vector, list, or sequence.

You will find more information about JSON Schema on the website.
Hackolade dynamically generates JSON Schema for the structure created with the application, and can be pre-viewed with a variety of options, as further described here. The JSON Schema can also be exported to the file system via the menu Tools > Forward-Engineering, or via the Command-Line Interface.
The JSON Schema can also be exported to a Confluent or Pulsar Schema Registry instance:
Hackolade can reverse-engineer of course JSON Schema from different drafts, but also infer the schema from JSON, YAML or NDJSON documents. It can also convert DDLs and XSDs to JSON Schema.
