What is this?

jwt is an npm CLI program for decoding JSON Web Tokens (JWT) and the Unix timestamps within their bowels.

Usage

There are two ways to parse a jwt. Copy the jwt to your clipboard and pipe it into the jwt command, or paste it as an argument.

  1. pbpaste | jwt
  2. jwt {the-jwt-string} --secret={optional-signing-secret}
$ jwt eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJpc3MiOiJodHRwOlwvXC9leGFtcGxlLm9yZyIsImF1ZCI6Imh0dHA6XC9cL2V4YW1wbGUuY29tIiwiaWF0IjoxMzU2OTk5NTI0LCJuYmYiOjEzNTcwMDAwMDAsImV4cCI6MTQwNzAxOTYyOSwianRpIjoiaWQxMjM0NTYiLCJ0eXAiOiJodHRwczpcL1wvZXhhbXBsZS5jb21cL3JlZ2lzdGVyIiwidGVzdC10eXBlIjoiZm9vIn0.UGLFIRACaHpGGIDEEv-4IIdLfCGXT62X1vYx7keNMyc
