JSON Export

This article refers to Game and VR projects on For help with Celtx Gem, please, see here.


Once you're ready to move your project from Celtx to the game engine of your choice, you can export your Celtx project as a .JSON file.

JSON, or "JavaScript Object Notation" is an open standard, language-independent file format, and data interchange format, that uses human-readable text to store and transmit data.

Within the context of the Celtx Online Studio, JSON files contain all of the data associated with each aspect of your project (such as node titles, dialogue, characters, etc), and are commonly used in video game production because they are easily editable and readable; JSON code is like the skeleton of your project, that can be used to build your story into a playable game.


To export your project, select the 'Export JSON' option via the 'File' menu in your script editor; the JSON will be downloaded to your browser's 'Download' folder.


If you require further assistance JSON exports, please write our support team at
