  • The Pretty JSON Revolution | 2021-02-23
    I prefer Nushell[1] for data processing, it's a full fledged shell but I rarely use it as a interactive shell, mostly as a scripting language and some one-offs oneliners. It supports CSV, JSON and other languages by default and provide the data a much nicer common interface


  • Little: a statically typed, C-like scripting language.
    I have hope though. We're starting to see people write saner shells like Powershell (still pretty gross syntax but they fixed one huge issue with Unix shells - the fact that pipes are completely untyped) and Nushell which seems to be kind of like Powershell but with a much nicer syntax.

    Got it. Even so I still prefer to learn only unix and go with it, most of the time awk solves all my data problems

    About your transformation problems, give a look at NuShell[1], it's a full fledged shell but I rarely use it as a interactive shell, mostly as a scripting language, it heavily simplifies the extract, transform and load from the terminal. Also it's written in Rust and available to most mainstream OSes
