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
