Get repository metadata in machine readable format (JSON)?

I’d like to build some custom monitoring tooling around restic backups. As such, I’d like to be able to get some metadata about a restic repository in a machine readable format.

For example, I want to monitor in a postgres database how old my most recent snapshot is. For that, I run some imaginary CLI command like restic info --format json > repository.json that can be read by other scripts.

Does such an interface exist?

You can try restic snapshots --json --latest 1


exactly what I needed, thanks!!
