What is the file extension of JSON?

  • Share this:

JSON does not have a specific file extension, because it is a data interchange format that is used to represent data structures and is not tied to a specific file type. However, JSON files are often saved with the .json file extension, which is a convention that is commonly used to indicate that the file contains JSON data.

JSON files can be created and edited with any text editor, and they are often used to store configurations, settings, or data that needs to be shared between different systems or applications.

Here is an example of a JSON file that stores a list of users:

    "id": 1,
    "name": "John",
    "email": ""
    "id": 2,
    "name": "Jane",
    "email": ""

JSON files can be easily read and parsed by most programming languages and platforms, and they are often used in combination with REST APIs or other types of web services to transmit data between systems.
