Jshon is a command line utility to parse, read and create JSON. It is
designed to be as usable as possible from within the shell and replaces
fragile adhoc parsers made from grep/sed/awk as well as heavyweight
one-line parsers made from Perl/Python. Jshon loads json text from stdin,
performs actions, then displays the last action on stdout.
Json parsing features include:
Return data types of values
Report data type lengths
Sort JSON data by keys
In-place editing of JSON files
Format or "beautify" JSON (as changing indentation, etc)
Create JSON from an empty object
Extraction of keys and values
