Python, put Json-Data in a variable

I want to put Json-File data in to individual variables. So I can use the variables for otherthings. Im able to create a Json-file from inputs from a other QDialog. The next move is to get the inputs back out of the Json-File and insert it into individual variables. So json:Line1 into self.line1Config and so on. Sorry for my English.

self.jsonfile = str(self.tn+'.json')

def WriteJSON(self):

    self.NewConfigJSON = {}
    self.NewConfigJSON['configs'] = []
    self.NewConfigJSON['configs'].append({
        'Line1':  str(self.CreatNewJsonW.Line1),
        'Line2':  str(self.CreatNewJsonW.Line2),
        'Line3':  str(self.CreatNewJsonW.Line3)
    })
    jsonString = json.dumps(self.NewConfigJSON)
    jsonFile = open(self.jsonfile, 'w')
    jsonFile.write(jsonString)
    jsonFile.close()

With the code below, it wont work:

  def CheckIfJsonFileIsAlreadyThere(self):
    try:
        if os.path.isfile(self.jsonfile) == True:
            data = json.loads(self.jsonfile)

            for daten in data:
                self.line1Config = daten['Line1']
                self.line2Config = daten['Line2']
                self.line3Config = daten['Line3']
        else:
            raise Exception
         
    except Exception:
        self.label_ShowUserText("There are no configuration yet. Please create some 
        configuartions")
        self.label_ShowUserText.setStyleSheet("color: black; font: 12pt "Arial";")

The Error Code:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "c:path", line 90, in CheckIfJsonFileIsAlreadyThere
    data = json.loads(self.jsonfile)
  File "C:Program FilesWindowsAppsPythonSoftwareFoundation.Python.3.9_3.9.1776.0_x64__qbz5n2kfra8p0libjson__init__.py", line 346, in loads

    raise JSONDecodeError("Extra data", s, end)
json.decoder.JSONDecodeError: Extra data: line 1 column 11 (char 10)

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

    MainWindow = mainwindow()

Answer

You have here two problems:

  1. json.loads needs a string and not a path. Change it to:

    with open(self.jsonfile) as jsonfile:
         data = json.load(jsonfile)
    
  2. You have forgotten your “Config” Level in your JSON structure:

     for daten in data["Config"]:
          self.line1Config = daten['Line1']
          self.line2Config = daten['Line2']
          self.line3Config = daten['Line3']
