Many developers need to check values used in their applications variables. One easy way of seeing those values is to display them on a Web page.

Nowadays, many developers prefer to use the JSON format to display application variable values. PHP supports the JSON format but sometimes the output of the JSON encoding functions is not very readable.

This class provides a solution to display application variable values using the JSON format in a way that can be more readable for all developers.
