tidy-viewer (tv) format json into table view
N.B. there’s another program (tv-cli) that installs the ‘tv‘ table viewer for json that can wind up in your .cargo/bin – if that happens, then you’ll need to set up aliases or something so you can use the one you want.
There’s a whole bunch of tools out there:
miller seems to be the most versitile (that I could install without effort)
xsv also looks good.
dasel appears to be similar, but I haven’t tried it yet.
pspg looks very good.
The instructions to install csvtk are out of date (go get instead of go install)
Most of the homepages for these list others as well (tv, visidata, …)
I stumbled onto visidata. I’ve got tons of csv files and the ability to view them quickly at the command line is a huge win. But this thing is amazing. Csv files are the tiny tip of a huge iceberg.
Update: I’m reminded of the xsv tool, which I discovered and promptly forgot.
