#' Return a json-encoded dictionary with information about javascript-rendered webpage.
#' It can include HTML, PNG and other information, based on arguments passed.
#' @md
#' @rdname render_json
#' @param html Whether to include HTML in output.
#' @param png Whether to include PNG in output.
#' @param jpeg Whether to include JPEG in output.
#' @param iframes Whether to include information about child frames in output.
#' @param script Whether to include the result of the custom executed javascript final
#' statement in output
#' @param console Whether to include the executed javascript console messages in output.
#' @param history Whether to include the history of requests/responses for webpage main frame.
#' Use it to get HTTP status codes and headers. Only information about "main"
#' requests/responses is returned (i.e. information about related resources
#' like images and AJAX queries is not returned). To get information about all
#' requests and responses use `har` parameter.
#' @param har Whether to include HAR in output. If `TRUE` the result will contain the same
#' data as [render_har()] provides under `har` list entry. By default, response
#' content is not included. To enable it use `response_body` parameter.
#' @param response_body Used with `har` parameter.
#' @return a huge `list`
#' @family splash_renderers
#' @inheritParams render_jpeg
#' @note All "whether to include..." parameters are default `TRUE` except for `png` and
#' `jpeg` and a custom `print` method is defined to stop your console from being
#' overwhelmed with data. Use [str()] to inspect various portions of the result.
