%load_json not working where root is array

+1 vote
asked Sep 1 in Bug by Tony Daly

Json data loaded using %load_json doesn't work if the root is an array rather than an object.

{"fruit":["apple","pear","banana"]} is OK
["apple","pear","banana"] is not OK

Yes, that is a defect.

See similar issue here, without `%load_json` by just with json element:

[1, 2, 3]
json JSON {
[1, 2, 3]
