Importing increasing number of JSON values into an array
on May 3, 2018 at 9:35:54 pm

I have a JSON file that shows year-to-date financial data for an equity's stock price. This file is updated at the end of every day with a new data set. My hope is to create a simple line chart based on this data.

First thing's first, I wanted to import each day's stock price into AE. Because the JSON file is updated and grows every day, I was thinking about creating an array and defining it with a loop that will add each day's value to the array until it reaches the end of the data set. However, I'm not entirely sure how to do this with motionscript. Or if this is even the most efficient way to approach this!

I'm admittedly more of an expression hobbyist than a professional, so any insight would be helpful...even if it's telling me i'm doing it wrong. Thank you
