I’m looking for a way to manipulate JSON data. I’ve been using JsonData package by @alvpickmans up to this point but would like a way to do some more complex manipulation (specifically with arrays in the json objects). I’m wondering if there is a way to convert the Newtonsoft.Json .NET library into a zero touch package or use the python json module without having to install it on each computer the graph will be running on.
Seems like Newtonsoft wont import a la ZT which leaves Python as your best option, plus Newtonsoft methods and features are orientated around text-based programming paradigms so if you have complex requirements it would be the best way to go.
Well, for cheap coffee I’m happy to spend time implementing those reqs into JsonData package
Is there an embedded python library that could deal with JSON? If I’m sending this to other users, I don’t want to have to tell them how to install an iron python module on their computer.
Python does have its own JSON package but I’ve only ever used Newtonsoft so cant give you any more advice than this but i guess its your best option as this library is pre-installed with Python:
You need to add a new reference path too so add these lines to your imports:
path = r’C:\Program Files (x86)\IronPython 2.7\Lib’
On the good news front, looks like there is no need to add the reference path from Dynamo Sandbox 2.8 on - perhaps even earlier (on my personal laptop with nothing much installed on it so I can’t test).
Also good news, the documentation for this library is quite robust.
Wow, this is great news. That definitely makes it simple. Thanks @JacobSmall!
