    JSON-PIPE-TS

    A CLI tool to filter and transfer a stream of JSON or LOG event into another JSON files using Javascript language syntax

    Background

    Dealing with tons of log and JSON data files daily, and sick of the limitation of grep command. it becomes very necessary for me to find an easy-to-use tool to transfer log files or a JSON stream into a user friendly JSON data so that we can view it with powerful JSON viewer such as (http://treedoc.org), which provides rich UI interactions such as table view with filtering, sorting functions etc. Tried few existing tools, but none of them satisfies me. The most powerful and comprehensive tools is jq cli tool. but when I look at the enormous documentation which forces me to learn a brand new and pretty complex language just for the purpose to transfer JSON data doesn't make any sense for me. We already have so many powerful generic languages to deal with JSON, why we need another language. So I decided to develop this simple CLI tool which leverages Javascript language to describe filter and transformation logic. This tools supports filter and transform operations. The input/output can be stdin/stdout or files. The input format can be JSON stream or Log file. The just script can be provide on the CLI or from javascript modules files.

    Another project has similar idea is jsonmap, but it can only support newline-delimited JSON files which restricted JSON in a single line. This json-pipe tools supports of any json format.
