JSON.sh

yo, so it's a json parser written in bash

pipe json to it, and it traverses the json objects and prints out the path to the current object (as a JSON array) and then the object, without whitespace.

$ json_parse < package.json
["name"]    "JSON.sh"
["version"] "0.0.0"
["description"] ""
["homepage"]    "http://github.com/dominictarr/JSON.sh"
["repository","type"]   "git"
["repository","url"]    "https://github.com/dominictarr/JSON.sh.git"
["repository"]  {"type":"git","url":"https://github.com/dominictarr/JSON.sh.git"}
["bin","json_parse"]    "./JSON.sh"
["bin"] {"json_parse":"./JSON.sh"}
["dependencies"]    {}
#  ... etc

a more complex example:

curl registry.npmjs.org/express | ./JSON.sh | egrep '\["versions","[^"]*"\]'
... try it and see

Options

-b

Brief output. Exclude empty fields and duplicate data. This will improve performance for larger queries.
