How to read a JSON File Using Swift

JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation which is a standard text-based format for representing structured data based on JavaScript object syntax, we can use that in Swift, If you don’t have the JSON file you can create one Xcode->New->File->Strings
later you can rename .strings to .json & make sure it contains pure JSON only without any comments or markup.

#demoJSONFile look like below

"country": "India"

1. To load JSON file from Bundle, use Bundle.main.url(forResource
2. To convert into decode object use JSONDecoder
3. The Json is converted into swift model using CodableModel

struct CodableModel: Decodable {
    var country: String
if let url = Bundle.main.url(forResource: "demoJSONFile", withExtension: "json") {
    do {
        let data = try Data(contentsOf: url)
        let decoder = JSONDecoder()
        let jsonModel = try decoder.decode(CodableModel.self, from: data)
      } catch {
           // Block for error handling
