Storing vars in file as human readable plaintext?

Is it possible to make Godot save vars in a file as human readable?

		var file ="./thisfile.txt", File.WRITE)
		file.store_var(position) #Unreadable

If I open the created file with notepad or whatever, the first store creates unreadable text. This also happens with store of numeric types, such as float and double.

Is there a way to make it so that Godot saves the vars, or anything that isn’t a string, as plaintext that can be edited manually later?

You can try using the JSON. If these are configuration files, you can also try the ConfigFile class.

I don’t know about those methods of File class, and I don’t know how to convert JSON into easily readable file, but I know how to transform variables into strings :
You should use str2var() and var2str() methods

Or if You meant You need all your variables names :

It is called on script class, I hope it helps
