  • json: It is an object or array of objects that will form the contents of the JSON object to be created.
  • filename: It specifies the string that is used as the filename of the saved file.

  saveBtn.position(30, 50)
  saveBtn.mousePressed(saveFile);
}
  
function saveFile() {
  
  // Save the JSON object to file
