  • visidata

    A terminal spreadsheet multitool for discovering and arranging data

    For interactive slicing and dicing of csv, xml, json, etc. I like VisiData. For scripting I like miller and jq. Not sure how that compares to your PS setup.

    There are some recent Unix shells, like nushell for working with structured data, but I haven't used them.
