I am trying to pass in a JSON file and convert the data into a dictionary.
So far, this is what I have done:
json1_file = open('json1')
json1_str = json1_file.read()
json1_data = json.loads(json1_str)
I'm expecting json1_data to be a dict type but it actually comes out as a list type when I check it with type(json1_data).
What am I missing? I need this to be a dictionary so I can access one of the keys.
