json.load() method to Read JSON files in Python. To work with JSON (string, or file containing JSON object), use Python’s
json module. You need to import the module before you can use it.
import json json.load(file object)
The json.load() accepts the file object, parses the JSON data, populates a Python dictionary with the data, and returns it back to you.
Read JSON file Python example
A simple example code opens the file ‘sample.json’ and parses it. Used the
open() function to read the json file. Then, the file is parsed using
json.load() method which gives us a dictionary named data.
import json with open('sample.json', 'r') as f: data = json.load(f) print(data) print(type(data))
You can convert a dictionary to JSON string using
res = json.dumps(data_dict)
Python objects and their equivalent conversion to JSON.
