The aeson-pretty package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

A JSON pretty-printing library compatible with aeson as well as a command-line tool to improve readabilty of streams of JSON data.

The library provides the function encodePretty. It is a drop-in replacement for aeson's encode function, producing JSON-ByteStrings for human readers.

The command-line tool reads JSON from stdin and writes prettified JSON to stdout. It also offers a complementary compact-mode, essentially the opposite of pretty-printing. If you specify -flib-only like this

 cabal install -flib-only aeson-pretty

the command-line tool will NOT be installed.
