  Description     : a 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.

jq is written in portable C, and it has zero runtime dependencies.

jq can mangle the data format that you have into the one that you want
with very little effort, and the program to do so is often shorter and
simpler than you’d expect.
