JSON.sh

yo, so it's a json parser written in bash

pipe json to it, and it traverses the json objects and prints out the path to the current object (as a JSON array) and then the object, without whitespace.

$ json_parse < package.json
["name"]  "JSON.sh"
["version"]  "0.0.0"
["description"]  ""
["homepage"]  "http://github.com/dominictarr/JSON.sh"
["repository","type"]  "git"
["repository","url"]  "https://github.com/dominictarr/JSON.sh.git"
["repository"]  {"type":"git","url":"https://github.com/dominictarr/JSON.sh.git"}
["bin","json_parse"]  "./JSON.sh"
["bin"]  {"json_parse":"./JSON.sh"}
["dependencies"]  {}
#  ... etc

a more complex example:

curl registry.npmjs.org/express | ./JSON.sh | egrep '\["versions","[^"]*"\]'
... try it and see

Show help text.
