    JSON Weight

    Quickly identify large branches in JSON API endpoints.

    npm install -g json-weight
    curl -s http://example.com/api/endpoint.json | json-weight
    

    Why?

    When conducting performance audits, we found it difficult to determine the shape of JSON API endpoints. Why was the output so large? What was the source of the problem?

    json-weight is a simple tool to assist in the troubleshooting of large JSON endpoints.

    Usage

    output-command | json-weight <depth> (optional)
    

    For example:

    curl http://code.viget.com/json-weight/endpoint.json | json-weight
    curl http://code.viget.com/json-weight/endpoint.json | json-weight 2
    

    Output

    curl http://code.viget.com/json-weight/endpoint.json | json-weight 2
