It’s one of the most recommended extensions for the prettier versions of JSON data. Whenever I am dealing with public APIs for getting data such as weather. The API data is in form of JSON. By default, our web page displays all the data in inline format. This extension converts the data into a prettier format to understand the structure of JSON easily.
Your job is to stop the incoming enemies from getting past your defenses. Unlike other tower defense games, you must position your towers using CSS!
