HELP! Importing json file into csv into jupyter notebook
Im trying to access data for Magic the gathering to process it in a pandas dataframe using Jupyter Notebook.

The data is downloaded from this website, in json. file type:

However, when I read the data in jupyter notebook, the dataframe only displays a small portion of the data.
Can someone please tell me where I'm going wrong?

Notebook print screen:

I couldn't read this file with pandas.read_csv.
I can however read it with the json class.

Note that the json file has nested json within.
This is why Pandas couldn't read it.
these can be json loaded individually

This is the first json file from the URL you supplied
import json
from CreateDict import CreateDict
import os

# Set starting directory to script directory

filename = ".../data/json/TSR.json"

datadict = {}

with open(filename) as fp:
    datadict = json.load(fp)

Note: I used display_dict from a class (which I have included) this must be in same directory as above script, and named
#  Author: Larz60+ Nov 22, 2018
import os

class CreateDict:
    def __init__(self):

    def new_dict(self, dictname):
        setattr(self, dictname, {})

    def add_node(self, parent, nodename):
        node = parent[nodename] = {}
        return node

    def add_cell(self, nodename, cellname, value):
        cell =  nodename[cellname] = value
        return cell

    def display_dict(self, dictname, level=0):
        indent = " " * (4 * level)
        for key, value in dictname.items():
            if isinstance(value, dict):
                level += 1
                self.display_dict(value, level)
                print(f'{indent}{key}: {value}')
            if level > 0:
                level -= 1

There is pandas.json_normalize to help with task like this.
If doc dos help search eg Normalize nested JSON objects with pandas.
