Getting started with jq


This section provides an overview of what jq is, and why a developer might want to use it.

It should also mention any large subjects within jq, and link out to the related topics. Since the Documentation for jq is new, you may need to create initial versions of those related topics.

Installation or Setup

Detailed instructions on getting jq set up or installed.

Install on Mac

Using brew:

$ brew install jq

Then test:

$ echo '{"name": "john"}'
{"name": "john"}

$ echo '{"name": "john"}' | jq '.'
  "name": "john"

$ echo '{"name": "john"}' | jq '.name'
