JSON file format


Where might I find information on the JSON file format used when exporting my Balsamiq project to JSON?

Hi @jamesladd and thanks for reaching out.

While we don’t have any specific documentation about the JSON file format, we’ll be happy to answer any specific question you may have.

One our user created this utility tool and documented it pretty well so you may find some useful information there too.

Let us know if you need more details, we’re here to help! :slight_smile:


There is info on the main site that says you can save a project in JSON format - so wouldn’t you have info on that format rather than a Users utility?


Sorry about that @jamesladd, we have not documented it on our website because most users don’t seem to need it but we’re happy to answer any question you may have.

The format is a simple JSON structure to describe the internal data structure of a wireframe. The properties are written in a way that should make their purpose clear. Generic information about the JSON format can be found online (see this page for example).

Hope this helps!
