Convert raw lines to a JSON object.

Project description


This is a simple tool to convert whitespace-separated items on separate lines to a JSON object.


Use PyPI:

$ pip install json_lines_to_object


Just pipe the data in:

$ printf "key1 value1\nkey2 value2\nkey3 value3 value33" | jlto
    "key1": "value1",
    "key2": "value2",
    "key3": "value3 value33"


  • Will ignore newlines.


  • Can be told to skip hash-commented lines.

  • Can be told to automatically add an empty string for a value if there is only one part on the line (causes error by default).

  • Can be told to allow duplicate keys (causes error by default).

  • Can be told to flip the keys and values (the values will be the keys).

See command-line help for more information.
