What is a JSON file?

Started by grofee, September 16, 2022, 03:15:01 PM


A JSON file stores data in key-value pairs and arrays; the software it was made for then accesses the data. JSON allows developers to store various data types as human-readable code, with the keys serving as names and the values containing related data.


JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a format for serializing data, i.e. exchanging data between several programs over files or over the internet. It is human readable and happens to be a subset of the Javascript programming language.
