About JC Information

jc now has an about option that will show the version of jc and all of the included parsers. Other information, including parser compatibility and authorship will also be shown in JSON format.

$ jc -a -p

      ]
    },
    {

    },
    ...
  ]
}

Schema Changes

The ifconfig parser output now prints the state value as a JSON array instead of a string. Also, as mentioned above, rx_bytes and tx_bytes are available.

$ ifconfig lo | jc --ifconfig -p
[
  {
    "name": "lo",
    "flags": 73,
    "state": [
      "UP",
      "LOOPBACK",
      "RUNNING"
    ],
    "mtu": 65536,
    "ipv4_addr": "127.0.0.1",
    "ipv4_mask": "255.0.0.0",
    "ipv4_bcast": null,
    "ipv6_addr": "::1",
    "ipv6_mask": 128,
    "ipv6_scope": "0x10",
    "mac_addr": null,
    "type": "Local Loopback",
    "rx_packets": 0,
    "rx_bytes": 0,
    "rx_errors": 0,
    "rx_dropped": 0,
    "rx_overruns": 0,
    "rx_frame": 0,
    "tx_packets": 0,
    "tx_bytes": 0,
    "tx_errors": 0,
    "tx_dropped": 0,
    "tx_overruns": 0,
    "tx_carrier": 0,
    "tx_collisions": 0,
    "metric": null
  }
]

The df parser now uses an underscore instead of a dash in the “blocks” field name:

$ df | jc --df -p
[
  {
    "filesystem": "devtmpfs",
    "1k_blocks": 1918816,
    "used": 0,
    "available": 1918816,
    "mounted_on": "/dev",
    "use_percent": 0
  },
  ...
]
