FX is a command-line JSON data file processing tool. It can be installed via npm, brew or downloaded as a standalone binary. It can work in two modes: cli and interactive.
fx comes in handy with a curl command. If you have some API which returns JSON and you want to dig into the structure or just see it, pipe JSON into fx.
fx has a really neat interactive mode for digging into JSON.
You can use your mouse 🐁 or arrow keys for navigating JSON. fx supports folds, click on a filed to expand it or press ➡️ right arrow to expand. Press e key to expand all fields recursively. Press Shift + e to collapse everything back.
You can see a video tutorial below and get more information in the documentation and the GitHub site. Also there is a very good article: Discover how to use fx effectively, a JSON manipulation command line tool.
