jc - JSON Convert bluetoothctl command output parser

Supports the following bluetoothctl subcommands:

Usage (cli):

$ bluetoothctl info <dev> | jc --bluetoothctl

or

$ jc bluetoothctl info <dev>

Usage (module):

import jc
result = jc.parse('bluetoothctl', bluetoothctl_command_output)

Schema:

Because bluetoothctl is handling two main entities, controllers and devices, the schema is shared between them. Most of the fields are common between a controller and a device but there might be fields corresponding to one entity.

Controller:
[
    {
        "name":                 string,
        "is_default":           boolean,
        "is_public":            boolean,
        "is_random":            boolean,
        "address":              string,
        "alias":                string,
        "class":                string,
        "powered":              string,
        "discoverable":         string,
        "discoverable_timeout": string,
        "pairable":             string,
        "modalias":             string,
        "discovering":          string,
        "uuids":                array
    }
]

Device:
[
    {
        "name":                 string,
        "is_public":            boolean,
        "is_random":            boolean,
        "address":              string,
        "alias":                string,
        "appearance":           string,
        "class":                string,
        "icon":                 string,
        "paired":               string,
        "bonded":               string,
        "trusted":              string,
        "blocked":              string,
        "connected":            string,
        "legacy_pairing":       string,
        "rssi":                 int,
        "txpower":              int,
        "uuids":                array,
        "modalias":             string
    }
]
