Automaat Processor: JSON Edit

Use jq syntax to filter and manipulate JSON strings.

🚧 Work In Progress 🚧


An Automaat processor to run a jq program against a JSON string.

You can use this processor to manipulate JSON strings provided by another processor.

This is a very powerful and versatile processor, courtesy of the jq library. It allows you do filter data, manipulate data, or return boolean values that can be used in the next processor to decide its output.


Take the value of the hello key, and uppercase the ASCII characters.

use automaat_core::{Context, Processor};
use automaat_processor_json_edit::JsonEdit;

let context = Context::new()?;

let processor = JsonEdit {
    json: r#"{"hello":"world"}"#.to_owned(),
    program: ".hello | ascii_upcase".to_owned(),
    pretty_output: false,

let output = processor.run(&context)?;

assert_eq!(output, Some("WORLD".to_owned()));
