flask import jsonify

To use the jsonify function in Flask, you need to import it from the Flask module. The jsonify function is used to convert a Python dictionary or list into a JSON response.

Here are the steps to import and use jsonify in Flask:

  1. Import the jsonify function from the Flask module by adding the following line at the top of your Python file:
from flask import jsonify
  1. Create a dictionary or list that you want to convert to JSON. For example:
data = {
    'name': 'John',
    'age': 30,
    'city': 'New York'
  1. Use the jsonify function to convert the data into a JSON response. For example:
json_response = jsonify(data)
  1. You can then return the JSON response from a Flask route or endpoint. For example:
def get_data():
    return json_response

This will return a JSON response containing the data in the specified route.

That's it! You have successfully imported and used the jsonify function in Flask to convert data into a JSON response.
