How to Work With JSON Files in Python by Tommaso De Ponti
All you need to do is open a new browser window and drag and drop your JSON file into it. Alternatively, you can open the file using the same steps we described above, but choose Firefox or Chrome instead of Notepad.
The format has evolved to allow for editing and interactive elements like electronic signatures or buttons. The PDF format is now a standard open format that isn’t just available under Adobe Acrobat. Creating a PDF can involve compressing a file, making it take up less storage space. You would typically create a PDF if you wanted to ensure document fidelity, to make it more secure, or to create a copy for storage. The text editors we saw in the first method weren’t dedicated tools meant for CSV processing.
Once you pick a separator, that’s the separator for the entire file. If, after opening the CSV file, the text is a single column (instead of separated by the commas), open the file in Microsoft Excel.
Disadvantages of JSON
- When working with files in Python, there may be times when you need to check whether a file exists or not.
- The SVG option of Font Awesome lets you do some things you can’t do with icon fonts.
- Before following the steps below, make sure you have downloaded the Firefox browser.
- Load() method can read a file that contains a JSON object.
This way Python doesn’t use the backslash (\) character to escape letters. We store the path object Path() returns in the file_path variable. In this example, you loop through the list of files returned by .getmembers() and print out each file’s attributes. The objects returned by .getmembers() have attributes that can be accessed programmatically such as the name, size, and last modified time of each of the files in the archive. After reading or writing to the archive, it must be closed to free up system resources. You can delete single files, directories, and entire directory trees using the methods found in the os, shutil, and pathlib modules.
How to Make an SVG File
The second way to build an image digitally is with vectors. Technically speaking, a vector graphic is an image constructed by dots and lines composed of mathematical formulas. In other words, a vector is formed by hundreds of thousands of tiny lines and curves (also known as paths). For this reason, you can zoom indefinitely on a vector and it will never change, become blurry, or ‘pixelated’ and blocky as in a raster image. First of all, if you have found this post and are not sure what exactly a SVG is and why you would want one, you are not alone. A SVG is the perfect type of file to use with your Cricut and any other cutting machine. It is universal for a wide variety of machines plus the best part is that it can be scaled without losing resolution.
CSV files don’t always use commas to separate information. A semicolon, space, or a different character might separate the pieces of information. Once you’ve opened a CSV file, you will see lines containing the same sequence of data.

Calling .unpack_archive() and passing in an archive name and destination directory extracts the contents of backup.tar into extract_dir/. ZIP archives can be created and extracted in the same way. Tarfile can also read and write TAR archives compressed using gzip, bzip2, and lzma compression. To read or write to a compressed archive, use tarfile.open(), passing in the appropriate mode for the compression type. They have an open() function that takes a mode that determines how the file is to be opened. A password is supplied to .extractall(), and the archive contents are extracted to extract_dir. The archive is closed automatically after the extraction is complete thanks to the with statement.
