We can easily decode the JSON file and display data in the table. First, we will import the person from the JSON file in App.js. Once we have imported, we can use the person as an array to get the data from the JSON. So we will create a table that will display id, Name, Age, Company, and Balance.
Our code in App.js will look like below.
the way we import because it is the only thing we really need.
I hope this helps. Modified1 month ago.
I'm new to react and confused about how to import, export, and render components.
Here is the app.js. Here is where I get confused in src/components/WatchlistTable.js. It is a rsuite table.
I try to import the fakeData.json file, which is located in the same components folder, like this:import fakeData from 'fakeData.json';But it gives error like "Module not found: Can't resolve fakeData.json". So I try another way. But it gives same error. In the Visual Studio Code editor I notice message like: "there is no fakeData.json in the public folder."
I change fakeData.json in components folder to fakeData.js and add. But same error. But same error.

To achieve that you must store your JSON array in a variable and then export default your JSON array.
module.exports = customData;
By Doing this you can easily import it in your component.
import customData from '../customData';

And also instead of using named import syntax use default import syntax. i.e., in your case use below statement to import that json file in your component.import jsonFile from "./fakeData.json";.
