How to verify JSON Data in Python?

0 votes

Would someone let me know how to verify JSON data in python. There are so many modules available to verify XML file, however I didn't find any good module to verify JSON Data.

After searching on the internet I came across JSON module, however it only coverts the JSON data to python. it's good, however the problem comes when JSON response is very large.

Is there any module through which I can verify JSON file like DOM or Object oriented way. ( i.e. data.key)

Python comes with a built-in json module. Just use json.load() or json.loads() to parse your JSON data. The first call reads from a string, the second on from a file, but in all other ways, they're identical.

There are a bunch of third-party modules (ujson, etc) which are faster, but fundamentally, they're all the same.

If I understand you correctly, you're reading a JSON document which is so large that if you store the converted data as a Python object, you run out of memory? If that's the case, I'm not sure if there's a good pure Python solution. I don't know of any json modules which parse, but don't store, the data.

Depending on what operating system you're on, there may be a command-line utility which parse JSON. For example, on Ubuntu linux, there's "json_xs". Perhaps shell out to that, use the "-t null" output format, redirect the output to /dev/null, and see what exit status you get:

# Good JSON
$ echo '[1, 2, 3]' | json_xs -t null 2>/dev/null; echo $?

# Bad JSON
$ echo '[1; 2, 3]' | json_xs -t null 2>/dev/null; echo $?

Wrap this up in a subprocess.check_output() call, and you're done.

How can you detect if a key is duplicated in a JSON file? Example:

 "something": [...],
 "something": [...]

I have a growing JSON file that I edit manually and it might happen that I repeat a key. If this happens, I would like to get notified. Currently the value of the second key silently overwrites the value of the first.

Do you know about a command line JSON validator?

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {

chrome.tabs.getSelected(null, function(tab) {
  d = document;

    request = new XMLHttpRequest();"POST","",true);
    request.addEventListener("readystatechange", processRequest,false);
    function processRequest(e)
    if(request.readyState==4 && request.status == 200)
    var response = JSON.parse(request.responseText);

And my Python server code is follows

from flask import Flask, flash, redirect, url_for, request, render_template,jsonify

@app.route('/PutValue/',methods = ['POST'])
def PutValue():
request.method == 'POST'
print s
return jsonify(result=s)
