In python3, I want to load this_file, which is a json format.
Basically, I want to do something like [pseudocode]:
>>> read_from_url = urllib.some_method_open(this_file)
>>> my_dict = json.load(read_from_url)
So you want to be able to reference specific values with inputting keys? If i think i know what you want to do, this should help you get started. You will need the libraries urlllib2, json, and bs4. just pip install them its easy.
import urllib2 import json from bs4 import BeautifulSoup url = urllib2.urlopen("https://www.govtrack.us/data/congress/113/votes/2013/s11/data.json") content = url.read() soup = BeautifulSoup(content, "html.parser") newDictionary=json.loads(str(soup))
I used a commonly used url to practice with.
