Convert between TSV and JSON (
$ npm install --global tsv-json
This CLI module provides two commands:
tsv2json, which receive one or more paths (of files or folders) to process and convert. Folders are expanded into the
.json files they contain (not recursive). The conversion result for each file will be stored in a new file with the extra
current-folder ├── foo.json ├── whatever.txt └── bar.tsv
tsv2json .in this situation is equivalent to calling
tsv2json bar.tsvand will generate a file
bar.tsv.jsonwith the contents of
bar.tsvconverted to a JSON 2d-string-array.
json2tsv .in this situation is equivalent to calling
json2tsv foo.jsonand will generate a file
foo.json.tsvwith the contents of
foo.jsonconverted to a TSV string.
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
--forceoption 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.
