Read JSON with json.loads (Python 3)

Read JSON with json.loads

Parsing a string of JSON data, also called decoding JSON, is as simple as using json.loads(…). Loads is short for load string.

It converts:

  • objects to dictionaries
  • arrays to lists,
  • booleans, integers, floats, and strings are recognized for what they are and will be converted into the correct types in Python
  • Any null will be converted into Python’s None type

Here’s an example of json.loads in action!
