getJSON drops 80% of content

I’m trying to parse JSON contents (through a shortcode) and getting really weird results with 80% of the content just dropped.

I’ve simplified my code down to bare bones for debugging and now my JSON looks like that:

	  "rows": [
			 "nothing" : "first",
			 "nothing" : "second",
			 "nothing" : "third",
			 "alert" : "fourth",
			 "nothing" : "fifth",
			 "nothing" : "sixth",
			 "alert" : "seventh",
			 "nothing" : "ninth",
			 "nothing" : "tenth"

I parse it through a shortcode like that:

{{ $file := .Get 0 }}
{{ $datasource := getJSON $file }}
{{ $datasource }}

And the result which I am NOT expecting is this:

map[rows:[map[alert:seventh nothing:tenth]]]

Only two key-value pairs are present.
What could be the reason? Where to approach the problem?

I’ve cleaned cache with hugo mod clean --all.

umm… the keys need to be unique? That applies to any table format.

You can use resources.GetRemote to preserve the original string, but you will lose info as soon as you turn it into a data object.

Check out any online data format converter tool like Data Format Converter

Try to parse your snippet to YAML or anything and you see see this error:

Yeah, that explains, thanks. (It’s a really late hour here… :sweat_smile: )
