Follow the Tweets.

Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.

This is based on __unixmonkey73469__ answer. You will need to supply `--multiline 1` option to JSON importer if your .json is multiline (i.e. it was prettyfied)

And you still need catmandu installed via `cpanm Catmandu`

You need to install the Catmandu Perl module via `cpanm Catmandu`

ruby -ryaml -rjson -e 'puts JSON.pretty_generate(YAML.load(ARGF))' < file.yml > file.json
cp -p data.json data.yml
cp data.{json,yaml}

Valid JSON is a subset of YAML; no transformation is necessary; however, YAML has many syntax features that are not valid JSON, so you can't do the reverse as easily.

ruby -ryaml -rjson -e 'puts YAML.dump(JSON.parse(STDIN.read))' < file.json > file.yaml
python -c 'import sys, yaml, json; yaml.dump(json.load(sys.stdin), sys.stdout, default_flow_style=False)' < file.json > file.yaml

Convert JSON to YAML.

Note that you'll need to have PyYaml installed.

python -c 'import sys, yaml, json; json.dump(yaml.load(sys.stdin), sys.stdout, indent=4)' < file.yaml > file.json

Converts YAML file to JSON.

Note that you'll need to install PyYAML. Also some YAML data types (like dates) are not supported by JSON).
