Lets say you have RESTful Web Service. For any given URL, you might support one or more of the HTTP verbs: GET, PUT, POST, DELETE and so on. A user might wonder what they mean, and which you actually support. One way of reporting that is by using the OPTION Verb. While this is a relatively unusual verb, using it to describe a resource is a fairly well known mechanism. I want to take it one step further.
The JSON file format is used for marshalling data in lots of different applications. If you are new to an application, and don’t know the data, it might be hard to visually parse the JSON and understand what you are seeing. The jq command line utility can help make it easier to scope in to a section of the file. This is a starting point.
