Usage Example

>>> import subprocess
>>> import jc
>>>
>>> cmd_output = subprocess.check_output(['dig', 'example.com'],
                                         text=True)
>>> data = jc.parse('dig', cmd_output)
>>> data
[{'id': 64612, 'opcode': 'QUERY', 'status': 'NOERROR', ...}]

Alternatively, you can bypass the high-level API and call the parser modules directly:

>>> import subprocess
>>> import jc.parsers.dig
>>>
>>> cmd_output = subprocess.check_output(['dig', 'example.com'],
                                         text=True)
>>> data = jc.parsers.dig.parse(cmd_output)
>>> data
[{'id': 64612, 'opcode': 'QUERY', 'status': 'NOERROR', ...}]

Available Functions

Use help(jc.lib) for details.

parse

parse(
    parser_module_name: str,
    data: str | Iterable
) -> dict | list[dict] | Iterable[dict]

High-level API to easily access the parser. This API will find both built-in parsers and local plugin parsers.

parser_info

parser_info(
    parser_module_name: str,
    documentation: bool = False
) -> dict

Get the metadata for a particular parser.

all_parser_info

all_parser_info(documentation: bool = False) -> list[dict]

Get the metadata for all parsers.

get_help

get_help(parser_module_name: str) -> None

Convenience function to display the help screen for a parser using its module name.

parser_mod_list

parser_mod_list() -> list[str]

Get a list of all available parser module names to be used in parse(), parser_info(), and get_help().

plugin_parser_mod_list

plugin_parser_mod_list() -> list[str]

Get a list of plugin parser module names to be used in parse(), parser_info(), and get_help(). This list is a subset of parser_mod_list().

standard_parser_mod_list

standard_parser_mod_list() -> list[str]

Get a list of standard parser module names to be used in parse(), parser_info(), and get_help(). This list is a subset of parser_mod_list() and does not contain any streaming parsers.

streaming_parser_mod_list

streaming_parser_mod_list() -> list[str]

Get a list of streaming parser module names to be used in parse(), parser_info(), and get_help(). This list is a subset of parser_mod_list().
