re: How can I read a local JSON file in HTML/JavaScript? VIEW POST


Using fetch locally will do to, just pass the file location of the json file and it will work exactly as if you're fetching from an actual api .
async function getData(){
const data = await fetch('data.json'); // assuming that the json file is in the same folder
}// then you can just process it like a normal fetch request


TYSM! I appreciate this, and surprisingly it is the method Rishi Kumar Chawda showed (w/o the promises), and as I just asked them, to make this easier, is there a way to let the data break (escape) the scope of the promise?
