Or if you wish to help develop transmogrifier

$ python setup.py develop

With pip:

$ pip install transmogrifier

Usage

usage: transmogrifier [-h] [-i INPUT] [--input-type INPUT_TYPE] [-o OUTPUT]
                      [--output-type INPUT_TYPE] [--pretty] [-v]
                      [--loglevel LOGLEVEL] [--logfile LOG_FILE]
                      [args [args ...]]

positional arguments:
  args

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -i INPUT, --input INPUT
                        The input file (type is inferred by file extension).
  --input-type INPUT_TYPE
                        The input file type (overides file extension if any).
  -o OUTPUT, --output OUTPUT
                        Output directory for generated files.
  --output-type INPUT_TYPE
                        The output file type (overides file extension if any).
  --pretty              Prettify the output (where possible).
  -v, --verbose         set the log level to INFO
  --loglevel LOGLEVEL   set the log level, 0 = no log, 10+ = level of logging
  --logfile LOG_FILE    File to log messages to. If - or not provided then
                        stdout is used.

Examples

Read Test.json, prettify it and print it to standard output

$ transmogrifier —pretty -i Test.json

Read Test.plist and save it as Test.json

$ transmogrifier -i Test.plist —output-type json

Read file Test.txt as JSON and save it as yaml file Test.yaml

t$ ransmogrifier —input-type=json Test.txt Test.yaml

Known Issues

  • Doesn’t work with multiple YAML documents in one file. YAML parsing
  • seems too accepting. Check that what you’re converting makes sense.
