curl, but tries to prettify json

What is jcurl?

Runs the thing named curl on your system and pipes the output to a node script that attempts to JSON.parse() the result and output it as pretty-printed JSON. If it can't, it just outputs whatever came out, unaltered.

Any params you pass are simply passed along wholesale to the curl command on your system.

This isn't a replacement for curl, but rather just a tool that makes it easy to read JSON for testing and debugging purposes for people who are in the habit of typing curl commands.


npm instal -g jcurl
