A lightweight and flexible command-line JSON processor. jq is like sed for JSON data – you can use it to slice and
filter and map and transform structured data with the same ease that sed, awk, grep and friends let you play with text.


JSON is a lightweight data-interchange format. It can represent numbers, strings, ordered sequences of values, and
collections of name/value pairs.
JsonCpp is a C++ library that allows manipulating JSON values, including serialization and deserialization to and
from strings. It can also preserve existing comment in unserialization/serialization steps, making it a convenient
format to store user input files.
