loads json data from a file

loading a file

Loads json file data, and returns the corresponding python data type.

maci.jsonload -> list | dict | str | int | float | bool | None

Basic Example of loading a json file using default positional parameter

data = maci.jsonload('mydata.json')

In this example, we simply load json data from a file using the jsonload function and pass a string of the filepath to the file as an argument to the function to load the json data, and assign the returned data to a variable.

parameters & arguments

Describes all parameter functionality and accepted data types

filename: str | Path

First and only required positional argument. Accepts strings and Path objects

Use this parameter to point to your filepath

encoding: str | None

Optional parameter. Accepts strings or None. Default = None

Use this parameter to load the data with the desired codec of the encoded data if needed. The default uses the default of python, so you don't have to use this, but you can if the data is using a specific codec.

This function uses the native json library shipped with the python standard library for its underlying functionality. For more information on the json library, visit:
