PropertyPanePropertyEditor control

This control allows the user to edit the webpart properties in JSON. It can also be used to export properties of a webpart and later import them again to a similar webpart on a different page. If the user clicks 'export' a file named 'webpartproperties.json' is presented for download. The same file can be uploaded to a new instance of the same webpart on for instance another site or page.
