Install

Install globally so that the CLI is placed in your path.

npm install -g json-cli-toolkit

This will expose the command json in your path.

Use

json --help is your friend.

Common options

ignore

Ignore input that is not json. By default, json will error for parsing errors.

Examples:

json --ignore

json -i

multiline

Read multiline input as one json object per line.

Examples:

json --multiline

json -m

pretrim

Remove non-json content from the beginning of the input.

Examples:

json --pretrim

json -r

pretty

Pretty-print the json output.

Examples:

json --pretty

json -p

Commands

All commands have help in the CLI. You can access it as such:

json <command> --help

json delete

Remove a particular property and its value from the json.

--attr: The property to remove. Nested properties can be set using dot notation.

Examples:

json delete --attr propname
json delete --attr nested.prop
 
# Delete multiple properties at the same time 
json delete --attr one --attr two

json echo

Print the input json to the output.

Examples:

json echo
json echo --pretty

json exec

Use arbitrary JavaScript to transform or filter the input json:

--code: The code to execute. This code will be called multiple times if running with the multiline flag. It has acess to the following global objects:

  • obj: An object, which is the JSON being treated. You can modify this object as you like, and the result will be used for the output. Setting obj to undefined will filter the json object out of the output.
  • opts: The options object for the exec command. This object is shared across all executions of the code, and can be used to store and share data between executions.
  • _: Lodash, for convenience.

Examples:

# Add a new property 
json exec --code "obj.newProp = obj.one + obj.two"
 
# Filter out some input 
json exec --multiline --code "if (obj.name !== 'thing') obj = undefined"

json fill

Transform json input using a whitelist or blacklist of properties.

--exclude: Optional. A list of properties to exlude, if present. This list is provided as space-separated properties. They can be top-level properties or nested properties using dot notation.

--include: Optional. A list of proerties to include, if present. This list is provided as space-separated properties. They can be top-level properties or nested properties using dot notation.

Examples:

# Use a whitelist to transform the json input 
json fill --include thing nested.stuff
 
# Use a blacklist to remove properties from the json 
# all json objects 
json fill --multiline --exclude thing nested.stuff

json filter

Filter only json input entries that match specific rules:

--attr: The property to use in order to filter entries. If this flag is used alone, the existence of a value for this property will be treated as truthy, causing the entry will appear in the output. Nested properties can be accessed through dot notation.

--above: Optional, used with attr. The entry will appear in the ouput only if the attr property value is above the value if this flag. This flag only works with strings and numbers, and if the value defined by attr is any other type, the entry will not appear in the output.

--below: Optional, used with attr. The entry will appear in the ouput only if the attr property value is below the value if this flag. This flag only works with strings and numbers, and if the value defined by attr is any other type, the entry will not appear in the output.

--equals: Optional, used with attr. The entry will appear in the output only if the attr property value equals the value of this flag.

--in: Optional, used with attr. The entry will appear int he output only if the attr property value is included in the list provided with this flag.

--matches: Optional, used with attr. The entry will appear in the output only if the attr property value matches the regular expression defined in this flag.

--not: Optional, used with any of the other flags. It will flip the comparison resulting from the other flags being used.

Examples:

json filter --attr propname --equals muffins
json filter --attr nested.prop --matches ^[0-9]{3,}
json filter --attr propname --not --equals poptarts
json filter --attr propname --in one two three

json pluck

Get a value from the json object and print it to output.

--attr: The property to get. Nested properties can be accessed through dot notation.

Examples:

json pluck --attr propname
json pluck --attr nested.prop

json set

Set a particular value in the json object.

--attr: The property to set. Nested properties can be set using dot notation.

--inc: When set, the value will be incremented by the value set in this flag each time that a new json object is read in multiline mode.

--value: The value to set to the property.

Examples:

json set --attr propname --value muffins
json set --attr nested.prop --value pineapples
 
# Increment the value being set by 1 each time 
json set --multiline --attr count --value 1 --inc
 
# Decrement the value being set by 5 each time 
json set --multiline --attr fiveLess --value 0 --inc -5

json sort

Sorts multiple json records. This is most useful when used along with the --multiline flag, as sorting a single json record just results in that record.

Note: since this command needs to read the entire input content, it may not work with very large datasets like the other commands. Use responsibly.

--attr: The property in the json objects to use to sort. Nesxted properties can be defined using dot notation.

--order: The sort order to use. The acceptable values are ascending (or 1) and descending (or -1). The default order is ascending, when this flag is not defined.

Examples:

json sort --multiline --attr propname
json sort --multiline --attr some.property --order ascending
json sort -m --attr propname --order -1

json wrap

Wrap the input json in a new object at a defined path.

--attr: The property to which to assing the input json. Nested properties can be assigned using dot notation.

Examples:

json wrap --attr propname
json wrap --attr nested.prop
