Hi there @yosefrosner123,

What you could do is use Jquery for example.

That will look something like this, let’s say that you have your index.html file in the same folder as your users.json file. In this case, you could do $.getJSON('users.json') to get the content of that JSON file.

Here’s a code example:

<!-- First make sure to include Jquery -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.1/jquery.min.js"> </script>

<script>

    $(function() {


   var users = [];

   $.getJSON('users .json', function(data) {
       $.each(data.user, function(i, f) {
          // Do something here
     });

   });

});
</script>

For more information about .getJSON check out the official documentation here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
