jc.parsers.rpm_qi

jc - JSON CLI output utility rpm -qi command output parser

Works with rpm -qi [package] or rpm -qia.

The ..._epoch calculated timestamp fields are naive (i.e. based on the local time of the system the parser is run on)

The ..._epoch_utc calculated timestamp fields are timezone-aware and is only available if the timezone field is UTC.

Usage (cli):

$ rpm -qia | jc --rpm-qi

or

$ jc rpm -qia

Usage (module):

import jc.parsers.rpm_qi
result = jc.parsers.rpm_qi.parse(rpm_qi_command_output)
