json_diff 0.1.2

A small diff tool utility for comparing jsons


json-diff is a command line utility to compare two jsons.

Input can be fed as inline strings or through files.
For readability, output is neatly differentiated into three categories: keys with different values, and keys not present in either of the objects.
Only missing or unequal keys are printed in output to reduce the verbosity.

Usage Example:

$ json_diff f source1.json source2.json
$ json_diff d '{...}' '{...}'


f : read input from json files
d : read input from command line
