Suppose you have a dictionary in python say my_dict = {'a':11,'b':22,'c':33}. Refer to the following code - 

import json
my_dict = {'a':11,'b':22,'c':33}
with open("your_json_file", "w") as fp:

json.dumps is mainly used to display dictionaries as a json format with the type of string. While dump is used for saving to file

You can save the Python dictionary into JSON files using a built-in module json. We need to use json.dump() method to do this.


import json

# assume you have the following dictionary
sampleDict = { "name": "Emma", "rollNumber": 5 }
with open("student.json", "w") as write_file:
    json.dump(developer, write_file, indent=4)

Use the indent parameter to prettyPrint your JSON data. You can also use sort_keys to sort dictionary keys while writing it in the JSON file.

Reference: json.dumps()
