json2yaml - convert files of JSON objects into a stream of YAML objects
json2yaml [--verbose] [file ...]
json2yaml(1) reads files sequentially, writing them as YAML to standard output.
The YAML stream is vertical, with one field per line, whereas most of the JSON filters write entire objects per line.
This filter is often used as the equivalent of mysql(1)'s \G command:
ego (\G) Send command to mysql server, display result vertically.
The json_xs(1) utility can reformat JSON vertically as well, if you prefer JSON over YAML.
