Copy json for CLI

Mattermost API reference


The copy function is not workable for a paste in CLI. This calls for another copy function useable for CLI.

Do you mean because of the line breaks? When on the CLI, you can just type:

$ curl -d '

and paste it then, your sytsem will automatically insert the line breaks and wait for the closing quotation mark:

$ curl -d '{
  "channel_id": "string",
  "message": "string",
  "root_id": "string",
  "file_ids": [
  "props": {}

when you then type another ', you can continue to write your command. This is actually expected behaviour, there’s no single-line copy available if that’s what you meant.
