JSON Columns CLI

Navigate JSON-encoded data in a simple column-based interface, either to gain a general sense of the data structure or to create a copy-pastable path to a given value.

Usage

Web version:

The simplest way to use this tool is to copy some JSON to your clipboard and visit json-columns.com.

Command line:

Install:

npm install -g json-columns

To use, pass the app the path of a JSON-encoded file or pipe it JSON data directly from the shell via tools like curl. For example,

json-columns my-file.json

or

curl -# https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts | json-columns

This will generate a JSON Columns page pre-loaded with data from the supplied JSON file.
