I’ve blogged about jq – a lightweight and flexible command line JSON processor – a few times already (look here and here). Today I came across this blog post that showcases jq in deep comparison of really large JSON files (5 GB or so). This is not something that I need on a daily basis, but I’m sure it’ll come in handy one day.
php-jsonq provides an easy, yet powerful way to build queries for any JSON data (or PHP data structures for that matter, which are a step away). This has a variety of useful applications – data migration, API response filtering, complex configurations manipulation, and so on, and so forth.
