A pyang plugin to produce a JSON representation of module trees for use in graph libraries

Project description

# A pyang plugin to produce a JSON representation of module trees for use in graph libraries

This simplistic pyang plugin produces a JSON representation from YANG files. The output can be fed through a variety of libraries for data visualization. Development is mainly done for use with [D3](https://d3js.org/), e.g. using [Hierarchies (d3-hierarchy)](https://github.com/d3/d3/blob/master/API.md#hierarchies-d3-hierarchy).

Some libraries require certain objects, e.g. D3 expects `name` and `children` objects for structure. This may need to be adjusted in the plugin code for other libraries. Should likely be moved to options.

## Example
```
$ pyang -f jsontree ietf-interfaces\@2014-05-08.yang
