json-glib-format — JSON-GLib formatting tool


json-glib-format [-h--help] [--prettify] [--indent-spaces SPACES] URI [URI...]


json-glib-format offers a simple command line interface to format JSON data. It reads a list or URIs, applies the spacified formatting rules on the JSON data, and outputs the formatted JSON to the standard output.

The resources to operate on are specified by the URI argument.


-h, --help

Prints help and exits.

-p, --prettify

Prettifies the output, by adding spaces and indentation. This argument is useful to improve the readability of JSON data, at the expense of its size.

--indent-spaces SPACES

Changes the number of spaces using to indent the JSON data from the default of 2. This argument is only considered if --prettify is used.
