JSON is a common data format for exchanging information across the web. In TouchDesigner we can both use the JSON DAT to parse data, or do this operation directly in Python. In Python, JSON acts like a Python dictionary, which is a key-based schema for organizing data. Data is typically nested making it easy to trace how data points are connected. For additional examples, check out the OP Snippets for the JSON DAT.
