jc is a wrapper that converts the output of many standard command-line tools and a number of common file types to JSON for easier manipulation in scripts or processing with JSON-literate tools such as jq. In the Examples section (found by clicking the "" link), users can find numerous sample invocations covering a myriad of uses including: finding large files in a directory, summarizing installed Python packages, processing XML files, and many more. The Parsers section of the jc site lists the commands and formats that are understood out of the box. Users can also extend jc with their own custom parsers written in Python. Readers can install jc using either Python's pip package manager or with their operating system's package manager. Installation instructions are provided in the Installation section of the JC site.
