jello works similarly to jq but uses the python interpreter, so you can iterate with loops, comprehensions, variables, expressions, etc. just like you would in a full-fledged python script.
jtbl is simple and elegant. It just takes in piped JSON or JSON Lines data and prints a table. There’s only one option to turn on column truncation vs. wrapping columns if the terminal width is too narrow to display the complete table. It ‘does the right thing’.
