This shortcut breaks down big dictionaries into menus which you can then easily navigate through each key. Dictionaries can be imported from a file, the clipboard or even loaded from an API. This lets you query APIs easily.
- Quickly browse the results of APIs using the built-in mechanism to grab data from URLs. In fact if the value of any dictionary is a URL you can open it within the shortcut.
- Works any form of dictionary (JSON, plist, and form data) and data types that Shortcuts can support.
- General purpose parsing system allows the shortcut to correctly parse tricky keys (like those with
.or keys that are numbers), as well as nested lists and dictionaries.
- Easy navigation with the ability to go back up one level from anywhere or jump to wherever you specify.
- Use the shortcut to build other shortcuts. Accepts dictionaries (including as a string) and URLs as input. Inputting a URL will make the shortcut fetch the data located by the URL.
- Because of how Shortcuts handles lists lists with one object are treated as the object itself. This means when entering a path to the object you must omit the index of the object in list.
- The shortcut can take a long time to run if your dictionary contains many keys on one level.
