Subject: [OAUTH-WG] JWT CLI tool in PyJWT
We use JWT a lot and end up needing it while using curl, or needing quick JWT generation... so I added a jwt command line utility in PyJWT. It doesn't support all crypto methods yet (since PyJWT doesn't either), but it has a pretty nice interface for encoding/decoding.
You can install it with just "easy_install PyJWT". Here's the usage doc:
Usage: jwt [options] input
Encodes or decodes JSON Web Tokens based on input
jwt --key=secret json.web.token
jwt --no-verify json.web.token
Encoding requires the key option and takes space separated key/value pairs
separated by equals (=) as input. Examples:
jwt --key=secret iss=me exp=1302049071
jwt --key=secret foo=bar exp=+10
The exp key is special and can take an offset to current Unix time.
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-n, --no-verify ignore signature verification on decode
--key=KEY set the secret key to sign with
--alg=ALG set crypto algorithm to sign with. default=HS256
