lightweight and flexible command-line JSON processor
jq accepts a stream of JSON and then transforms it (selecting, iterating, reducing, etc) through one or more filters and then pretty-prints the results. jq is like sed for JSON data - you can use it to slice and filter and map and transform structured data with the same ease that sed, Gawk, grep and friends let you play with text.
DocumentationIf you want to learn to use jq, read the documentation at stedolan.github.io/jq.
