After our annual break from Programming By Stealth that happens at an unknown time for an unknown length every single year, Bart and I are back with a new episode of Programming By Stealth. Bart introduces us to a language called jq and a terminal command called
jq which together are used to help query JSON files, see “pretty versions of them, and also to manipulate them.
We don’t learn a lot of commands but Bart walks us through a few examples to help illustrate why we care, or shall I say, “the problem to be solved”? I’m sold on the idea having just mucked about in a config files for homebridge this week.
You can find Bart’s fabulous tutorial shownotes at pbs.bartificer.net.
