This does what I want except I do not want the quotations at the beginning and end:
curl -sk 'https://zuhqtr5.couchappy.com/site/www/' | sed -e 's/[{}]/''/g' | awk -v RS=',"' -F: '/^_rev/ {print $2}'

Open in new window

How can I get the same results without the quotes?

If you want all quotes removed from the string, add:
    | tr -d "'"'"'
to the end of the command - that deletes all double and single quotes
(it's double single double single double single)
