A cli program for running JSONPath queries. Wrapper of s3u/JSONPath


A cli program wrapping JSONPath


npm install JSONPathCLI -g


Accepts a jsonpath query as a parameter, and an optional filename to operate on

jsonpath $..* albums.json

If no file is provided it acts on stdin

cat albums.json | jsonpath $..*

Use the -c option to display a jsonpath cheatsheet

jsonpath -c


If the results are of a primitive type (string, number, boolean), they are output separated by a newline.

$ jsonpath $..author sample.json 
Nigel Rees
Evelyn Waugh
Herman Melville
J. R. R. Tolkien

$ jsonpath $..price sample.json 

If the results are javascript objects, or if the -j option is used to force json output, then the results are output as colorised json (using util.inspect)

$ jsonpath $..author sample.json -j
