  Description     : tool to scrape a Prometheus client and dump the result as JSON (library)

 Since the deprecation of the JSON exposition format, looking into
 metrics exposed by Prometheus can be a challenge, as one would
 usually need to interact with the Prometheus server and its protocol
 buffer format. Since JSON is a wildly-supported format, prom2json was
 designed to scrape a Prometheus client in protocol buffer or text
 format, in order to make the results available in JSON format.

Part of the crowdsec packaging effort:

This package comes with a prom2json command (skipped for now) that looks
like it could be useful on its own, but I don't know the Prometheus
ecosystem well enough to judge its usefulness. If anyone would like
another binary package to be added, shipping this command, this can
definitely be considered.
