The JSON Incremental Digger (jid) is an interactive tool to inspect and filter JSON data using a jq-like query language. Users start jid by pointing it at a JSON file. By default, with no query entered, jid simply pretty-prints and colorizes the data it was given. Users can then type in a query. As they type, the data will be filtered down to show the matching portions. To speed up the query building process, jid provides the user with tab completions and autosuggestion of query terms. The Usage section of the jid README provides a few brief illustrations of how the tool can be used. In the Releases section of jid's site, users can locate binaries for Windows, macOS, Linux, and several flavors of BSD. Most distributions and BSDs also provide a version of jid from within their official package repositories.
