Makefile lz4json Makefile: make it work on Mac OS X w/ MacPorts and BSD Dec 22, 2019
README No longer requires a little endian host Jan 14, 2019


A little utility to unpack lz4json files as generated by Firefox's bookmark backups and session restore.
This is a different format from what the normal lz4 utility expects.
The data is dumped to stdout.

Requires liblz4 (Debian package liblz4-dev, Fedora package lz4-devel) to be installed.

lz4jsoncat ~/.mozilla/.../bookmarkbackups/bookmarks-2014-12-27_151_0UCIWGB4x3hhQXpuSMs5WQ==.jsonlz4
