This little tool allows to quickly introspect .inkwidget and corresponding .inkanim exported as JSON from Wolvenkit when modding the game Cyberpunk 2077.

why ?

Browsing in WolvenKit is fine when there's a couple of widgets and interpolators, but it can quickly become tedious or close to impossible when there's hundreds of inkanimInterpolators and deeply-nested inkWidgets.

if you don't believe me, have a look in WolvenKit at base\\gameplay\\gui\\quests\\q001\\q001_mission0_connect_to_girl.inkwidget and base\\gameplay\\gui\\quests\\q001\\q001_mission0_connect_to_girl_animations.inkanim 😉 this is the anim for the biomonitor from the mission "The Rescue" : watch on YouTube.
