yq: a lightweight and portable command-line YAML processor

To update or switch versions, run webi yq@stable or webi yq@beta, etc.

Cheat Sheet

yq is like jq, meaning that it's like sed for YAML data - you can use it to slice and filter and map and transform structured data with the same ease that sed, awk, grep and friends let you play with text.

Usage: yq e '<selector>' <filepath>

Works with YAML:

echo 'name: John' | yq  e '.name' -

Works with JSON:

echo '[ { "name": "John" }, { "name": "Jane" } ]' | yq e '.[].name' -
