App::PipeFilter

VERSION

version 0.005

DESCRIPTION

App::PipeFilter is a distribution of shell pipeline filters designed to work with structured data like JSON rather than whitespace separated fields.

For example, jcut is a simple version of cut(1) that understands JSON objects rather than whitespace separated fields.

  % head -1 sample.json
  {"network":"freenode","channel":"#perl","nick":"dngor","karma":"120"}

  % jcut -o network -o channel < eg/sample.json | sort | uniq
  {"network":"efnet","channel":"#perl"}
  {"network":"efnet","channel":"#poe"}
  {"network":"efnet","channel":"#reflex"}
  {"network":"freenode","channel":"#perl"}
  {"network":"freenode","channel":"#poe"}
  {"network":"freenode","channel":"#reflex"}
  {"network":"magnet","channel":"#perl"}
  {"network":"magnet","channel":"#poe"}
  {"network":"magnet","channel":"#reflex"}

The jsonpath filter supports more complex expressions using JSON::Path's variant of JSONPath.

  curl -s 'http://api.duckduckgo.com/?q=poe&o=json' |
  jsonpath -o '$..Topics.*.FirstURL' -o '$..Topics.*.Text' |
  grep -i perl |
  jmap -i col0 -o url -i col1 -o title |
  json2yaml

DESIGN GOAL

App::PipeFilter utilities generally follow the UNIX convention of printing one record per line of text. This maximizes compatibility with UNIX utilities like sort(1), uniq(1) and grep(1).

PRO TIPS

JSON isn't particularly concise, so put grep(1), jcut(1) and other filters that eliminate data as early as possible in pipelines.
