Read JSON File in Python Program


This is a step by step example of how to read a JSON file in a Python program,

Step 1:

Make sure you import JSON module,

import json
Step 2:

Now lets read from an external JSON file,

json_file = open("sample-json-file.txt", "r")
Step 3:

Now we need to convert this json_file object to a String,

json_str = json_file.read()
Step 4:

Now lets convert this json_str to an JSON object,

json_obj = json.loads(json_str)
Step 5:

In this example, we will just iterate the array in the JSON file,

for element in json_obj:
  print(element['name'])
  print(element['age'])
  print(element['city'])
  print("-----------")
