To load in the file into a dictionary we run;
import json import pathlib p = pathlib.Path("settings", "config.json") d = json.loads(p.read_text())
We can move the file to a new location by running;
path_to = pathlib.Path("data", "configuration.json") p.rename(path_to)
Alternatively, you can also copy the file by taking the dictionary that we read in and writing that text somewhere.
text = json.dumps(d) pathlib.Path("data", "config-1.json").write_text(text)
