    hed

    hed allows you to use comments and avoid missing/trailing comma mistakes, even with configs like npm's package.json where comments are forbidden.

    How does it work?

    • hed FILE.json will convert JSON to Hjson and open it in your editor for editing
    • when you are done FILE.json is updated with your changes (as pure JSON)
    • any comments you added will be kept in FILE.meta
    • FILE.hjson is removed to avoid conflicting edits
    • the next time you run hed FILE.json your comments will be merged back

    Usage

    hed, an edit tool for JSON configs. Comments are preserved outside of JSON.
     
    Usage:
      hed [OPTIONS] FILE
      hed (-h | --help | -?)
      hed (-V | --version)
      hed --config [EDITOR]
