Script To Generate JSON Files For Data

While the original data was broken down into separate machine readable files, it was pipe delimited, which isn't always the breakfast of data champions, so I wanted to make sure it was also available in JSON format to encourage as much reuse as possible, across many different audiences.

With the clinical trials data in a MysQL database, it was very easy to write a script that would output as separate JSON Files:

The script could use some tweaking, and I haven't certified all the data outputted yet, but it has helped me quickly generate a complete set of clinical trial data in JSON for anyone to download and use all, or part of.
