    tsv-json-cli Build Status

    Convert between TSV and JSON (string[][])

    Install

    $ npm install --global tsv-json
    

    Usage

    This CLI module provides two commands: json2tsv and tsv2json, which receive one or more paths (of files or folders) to process and convert. Folders are expanded into the .tsv or .json files they contain (not recursive). The conversion result for each file will be stored in a new file with the extra .json or .tsv extension.

    Example

    current-folder
    ├── foo.json
    ├── whatever.txt
    └── bar.tsv
    
    • Calling tsv2json . in this situation is equivalent to calling tsv2json bar.tsv and will generate a file bar.tsv.json with the contents of bar.tsv converted to a JSON 2d-string-array.

    • Calling json2tsv . in this situation is equivalent to calling json2tsv foo.json and will generate a file foo.json.tsv with the contents of foo.json converted to a TSV string.

    Notes

    • The following flags are available:

      • --help: Show usage
      • --version: Show CLI version
      • --force: Allow overwriting files for the output
    • Helpful errors messages are provided in case of problems (and the process will exit with code 1).

    • No file will be overwritten unless the --force option is provided. For example, if you call tsv2json . twice in this example, the second call will fail as follows:

      [FAIL] bar.tsv: Refusing to overwrite "bar.tsv.json". Run with --force to overwrite.
      
    • If multiple files are being processed, problems processing each file will be reported separately, and one failure does not prevent the other files to be processed. The output of the CLI will show which files worked fine and which ones had problems. The CLI will exit with status code 1 if there was one or more problems.
