What would you like to do?
A super simple JSON formatter in Go.
package main
import (
"bytes"
"encoding/json"
"flag"
"fmt"
"io/ioutil"
"os"
)
func main() {
indent := flag.String("indent", " ", "indentation string/character for formatter")
flag.Parse()
src, err := ioutil.ReadAll(os.Stdin)
if err != nil {
fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "problem reading: %s", err)
os.Exit(1)
}
dst := &bytes.Buffer{}
if err := json.Indent(dst, src, "", *indent); err != nil {
fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "problem formatting: %s", err)
os.Exit(1)
}
if _, err = dst.WriteTo(os.Stdout); err != nil {
fmt.Fprintf(os.Stderr, "problem writing: %s", err)
os.Exit(1)
}
}
