GitHub repository jqlang/jq contains a lightweight and adaptable JSON processor that can be learned through documentation linked in the repository, or practiced on the website jqplay.org. The command-line JSON processor's internal workings are not fully documented; therefore, there are numerous advanced topics, cookbooks, and internal discussions linked on the project's wiki page. Source code and executable releases are available on the homepage and GitHub release pages of the project. Developers who are not experienced with building software from a Git repository should avoid jq or review the repository's build documentation carefully. Community support is available through the project's wiki and Discord server, as well as Stack Overflow, where users can ask questions about the project. Cross-compilation guides and instructions for building a statically linked version of jq are available on the project's repository, as well as documentation on local installations.
