In this article I give a quick snapshot of what it’s like to work with JSON in various traditional and next generation shells. Traditional shells like Bash and Windows Command Prompt (cmd.exe) don’t have built-in JSON support and require 3rd party utilities. Newer shells like NGS, Nushell, Oil, Elvish, Murex, and PowerShell have JSON serialization/deserialization and filtering capabilities built-in for a cleaner experience.
jc now supports 100 standard and streaming parsers. Thank you to the Open Source community for making this possible!
JC version 1.18.1 release includes a high-level parse API along with public helper functions and better documentation when using JC in Python programs and scripts. 85 parsers included!
JC version 1.17.0 release includes support for streaming parsers (e.g. ls, ping, vmstat) that output JSON Lines (aka NDJSON). 78 parsers included!
