    I've been using Visual Studio for a very long time. Probably close to two decades. It has it's strengths and weaknesses, but I've always been able to get the job done. I've been using Rider for a few months now and I'm really enjoying it. I made the switch partially to try something new, and partially from some mild peer pressure from all the young guns in the office. It's a great IDE and I'm finding it to be a great alternative to Visual Studio. Recently, I noticed that JSON configuration files (as are commonly found in ASP.NET Core projects) were not nested like they normally are in Visual Studio. I googled around for a solution, but after a reading a few inadequate solutions, I decided to write my own. I'm sharing it here in case anyone else is looking for a solution.
