Json shorthand for python

Project description

Jshort

Python shorthand for json. inspired by q

This package allows json load, dump from and to file with few code.

Installation

pip install jshort

Usage

# This is an instance
import j 

# Loads json from file, stores it in data property
h = j(input_path='/tmp/data.json')

# Get data
h.data
#{
#   "foo": "bar"
#}

# Display colored content
print(h)
# or
h.prt()
# {
#     "oh": "dayum!"
# }

# The same, in short
# For data
j(i='/tmp/data.json').d
# Print
j(i='/tmp/data.json').prt()

# Write json
j(output_path='/tmp/out.json', data={"foo": "bar"})

# Also write data in a shorter way and change print content setting indentation to 2
j(o='/tmp/out.json', d={"hey": "jude"}, indent=2).prt()
# {
#   "hey": "jude"
# }

# Traversing json documents using https://pypi.org/project/jsonpath-ng/
j(d=my_dict).path('key')

# Shorter and with more filtering
j(d=my_dict).p('sub.*')

# Or fintering on an array and from a file
j(i='/tmp/data.json').p('key[1]')

Have a look at https://pypi.org/project/jsonpath-ng/ for more about json traversing.

If only one result is returned from filtering, the path method returns only the result otherwise it is a list of results.

Json as object

It is possible to manipulate json in j instance as a python object. Try the following:

o = j(d={'a': {'b': 1}}).obj

#raw data
o.data_
#{'a': {'b': 1}}

#pretty print it
print(o)
#dumps with syntax coloration the json content

o.c
#None

o.a
#{'b': 1}

o.a.b
#1

o.a['test'] = 1
print(o.d_)
#{'a': {'b': 1}, 'test': 1}

Enjoy.
