I'm getting this string data from curl command

{"password": [["passwordreal", "2035/01/01 00:00"]], "user": "user1", "address": "kobebkokoko.net"}

How do I get passwordreal using sed?


curl xxxx | sed -n '/ *"password"' => Been working on this long hours.


Using jq, you would get the raw password string with

curl ... | jq -r '.password[0][0]'

I.e., get the first element of the array-in-array of the password key in the returned JSON object.

Using sed in this instance would be a mistake, as the password string could possibly contain any character, including JSON encoded data that you would have to decode separately. jq does this for you.
