    Arguments:
      <key>     A dot (`.`) delimited key which references the value that should be returned or overwritten.

    Options:
      -f, --file <file>          The JSON file to read.
      -s, --set <value>         The new value to set for the provided key.
      -d, --delete               Delete the provided key.
      -i, --indent <spaces>      The number of spaces to indent the newly written JSON.
    
    Example:
