The tutorials at CodeSchool are excellent as they prompt you step by step through what initially seem like very complex tasks. As a I worked through the tutorial and watched the videos, I recreated the project (a fun little gemstore) on my own computer.
This was really important to me to convince myself that I understood the technology.

- Open Firebug/developer tools

Just click the icon of the little outline after pasting in the results from your console and presto…there is your JSON file.
