jc.parsers.stat_s

jc - JSON Convert stat command output streaming parser

This streaming parser outputs JSON Lines (cli) or returns an Iterable of Dictionaries (module)

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

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

Usage (cli):

$ stat * | jc --stat-s

Usage (module):

import jc

result = jc.parse('stat_s', stat_command_output.splitlines())
for item in result:
    # do something

parse

@add_jc_meta
def parse(data, raw=False, quiet=False, ignore_exceptions=False)

Main text parsing generator function. Returns an iterable object.

Parameters:

data:              (iterable)  line-based text data to parse
                               (e.g. sys.stdin or str.splitlines())

raw:               (boolean)   unprocessed output if True
quiet:             (boolean)   suppress warning messages if True
ignore_exceptions: (boolean)   ignore parsing exceptions if True

Returns:

Iterable of Dictionaries
