There are a few ways of doing this but I have used curl then pipe the results through a python JSON pretty print tool. This formats the JSON for easily dropping into API docs.
curl ( some Openstack request with JSON output ) | python -mjson.tool
Hope this helps,

Subject: [openstack-dev] [Neutron][API Doc] Easy way to generate JSON output for doc?
I'm writing API doc pages for VPNaaS and was wondering if there are any tools/scripts to make it easy to generate the needed JSON result output for various operations?
It looks like I can do the neutron command with --verbose to get unformatted JSON output. Should I do that and then reformat the output (or is there way to do that easier)?
I did try to use json.loads() on the RESP: output, but it threw an ValueError "Expecting property name: line 1 column 1 (char 1)"
