The result of parsing a valid JSON document will be either an Object or an Array. With JSON becoming ubiquitous as an API response format, it is sometimes desirable to parse JSON data from command line. There are multiple tools available in order to do so, and Im personally using jq, a lightweight and flexible command-line JSON processor. JSON parsers that parse and generate JSON data are readily available for most programming languages. Visit www. json.org and you will find a broad range of available JSON libraries.
