What is a PYON file?

A PYON file contains simple data structures written in the Python Object Notation (PYON) format, which is identical to JSON. It is used to organize and store data used by a Python program. Using PYON Reader, Python programs can retrieve information from or update information in PYON files.

Like .JSON files, PYON files are used to structure and store datasets that programs can retrieve and update. Unlike JSON files, PYON files are meant to be used only with Python programs that import the PYON Reader (pyonr) package.

The document-oriented database NotDB, which is also developed by nawafalqri, also uses PYON-format data.

How to open a PYON file

You can open and edit a PYON file in any text or source code editor. Source code editors, such as Microsoft Visual Studio Code (multiplatform) and GitHub Atom (multiplatform), contain helpful features that make reading and editing PYON files easier.

To use a PYON file in a Python program, refer to pyonr's documentation (linked below).
