What We do here ?

In this example we create a JSON object then convert it into a JSON String and then to BLOB object, then downloaded as Text file from Browser using jQuery.

<input type="button" value="Download Json" onclick="DownloadJson()" />

        function DownloadJson() {
            var studentList = [
                { "Name": "John", "score": "30" },
                { "Name": "Rozi", "score": "40" },
                { "Name": "Peter", "score": "50" },
                { "Name": "Finch", "score": "60" },
                { "Name": "Ravi", "score": "70" }
            //Convert JSON Array to string.
            var json = JSON.stringify(studentList);
            var blob = new Blob([json]);
