Mods, not sure if this is the right place to post this request.

I'm looking for help with developing a question database builder for this plugin:

The gist is, I want to be able to read out / display from a list of JSON objects, edit those fields, and then save the updated version of the question database.

Example:

JavaScript:
var questionDatabase = {"Questions" : [
{"Note":"Question 2 - multiple choice with picture ",
"GUID":"MZQ-8b3e-168b-c65d",
"E":0,
"Q_T":4
,"Q":"What is the name of a shape that has three sides?",
"T":0,
"I":1,
"A":0,
"C_A":"Triangle",
"A2":"Square",
"A2_Why":"A square has four sides, not three.",
"A3":"Pentagon",
"A3_Why":"A pentagon has five sides, not three.",
"A4":"Hexagon",
"A4_Why":"A Hexagon has six sides, not three.",
"A5":"",
"A5_Why":"",
"S":"",
"R_T":"Gold",
"R_I":0,
"R_A":100,
"P_T":"HP",
"P_I":0,
"P_A":20,
"O_L":0},
]}

There's more detailed information on the plugin page. I currently have a primitive question builder system that uses forms to build the individual questions -- the user then has to manually insert each question object into the database file. I want to streamline and improve this for ease of use.

Wishlist:
1. Someone who would make a tool that does what I mentioned above.
2. Failing that, someone who can help point me in the right direction on how to proceed with making such a tool. I have limited JS experience beyond making a few plugins, but am happy to learn.

not entirely sure if it's a JS related as an outside tool is mostly C++
or around another language (but it might be able to do it in JS or PHP
otherwise.

I also wonder how to make those, but my knowledge doesn't go so deep.

One option would be for a Windows application in C++, but another would be something like Vue.js, which, as I understand it, is for developing single page MVC applications, which is what i'm looking for. Part of what I'm hoping for here is some guidance. It's possible that this would be trivial to do in Visual Basic, I have no idea.

there is an playtest editor in SMO_Achievements (for MV), not MZ,
which build the editor when your are online.

if your knowledge is good enough to understand the editor, that write it
on a json file, you might be able to make one to your needs.

but while it has a tons of options, halve of the editor doesn't fit.
but you might ask him to give a start or give you some idea's
how to build on for MZ if you look for that kind editor.

so hey can make questions online and test to see if its respond correctly.
but an outside tool like this galv_questLog Editor would be ideal.

so far I know, while this write to txt file, it is really easy to do for json.
but he could make it, but not for free due his job and low pay rate.
otherwise, you could made one for you, but not during this time or for
the community :(

but good luck on the tool, and hope someone is able to help you out.

So, uh... I have to work on the MZ beta for one of the games to be made in Unite (since it's not out yet) because I'm planning to put it on Kickstarter. It involves escape rooms, twisted animatronics, and the SCP Foundation. Plus it takes place in a theme park, and it's NOT a "Five Nights" game. It's got virtual escape rooms, secret notes, and a twisted secret only the SCP should know.
