I have been looking into learning Python for some time now and have just taken the leap. However, I keep getting this one error: "No json object could be decoded." I don't know what it is referring to or how to fix it. Does anyone else know?

The most common cause of this is you are giving the wrong argument to json.loads()

json.loads() needs a valid JSON string to be sent, otherwise it will die.

For example if you were trying to send file content to json.loads() if will give your error.

This is incorrect:


What you would need to do in this case is open the file and send the content to json.loads()

f = 'file.txt'
with open(f) as file:
    your_data = json.loads(file.read())

If you send the correct data to json.loads you're going to have a great time
