Jp is a command-line utility for generating quick visualizations of data. It can produce bar charts, line charts, scatter plots, histograms, and heatmaps from either JSON or CSV data. Users could employ tools like jq (featured in the 04-27-2018 Scout Report), pup (featured in the 04-11-2019 Scout Report), or csvkit (featured in the 01-31-2020 Scout Report) to extract data from online sources or local data sets, then use jp to generate visual summaries of that data. The jp README file describes the various data formats that the tool understands and shows plots generated from each type. In the Examples folder, users can locate the specific data files used to generate the example plots. Jp is free software, distributed under the MIT license, with source code available on GiHub. Executable binaries are available for download for Windows, macOS, and Linux systems.
