I made a new codebase that lets you use CumulusCI (CCI) to easily download the definition of every object and field in a Salesforce org (part of its “metadata”) onto your hard drive as a plain-text file formatted in the JSON punctuation standard.
Example usage: If they have programmers on staff who can transform it into a data structure useful to them, your company’s data governance team might find such a file useful for keeping a “data dictionary” up-to-date.
You could send that team a fresh copy of this file every time you alter your Salesforce configuration.
Think of it like sending someone a spreadsheet of output from the Field Trip AppExchange app, only in a different format.
