pedit

Published June 6th, 2007, updated February 29th, 2008.

“The pickle module implements a fundamental, but powerful algorithm for serializing and de-serializing a Python object structure.” Pedit is an interactive editor for such data structures, making them handy on the command line. The code is work-in-progress but yet useful…

Here’s a sample:

# /tmp/foo.pickle - pedit

[
  "foobar",
  True,
  1,
  [
    2,
    3,
    4,
    {
      "key": "value",
    },
  ],
]

# eof.
