Import files from a folder into Matlab and create a file list

12 views (last 30 days)
Greetings. I face problem in extracting more than 1000 .json files from a folder into Matlab. I would like to create a filelist containing all the files in the folder and then go through each files and extract data from them, something like
filelist = {'d90f3c.json', '112.json', ..., 'acd.json' }
for i=1:length(filelist)
vals{i} = jsondecode(fileread(filelist{i}));
% Do some operations
Is there any way that I can have the "filelist" rather than making filelist by copying and pasting the name of each file from the folder which seems takes forever?
Thanks in advance!

for i=1:numel(d)
vals{i} = jsondecode(fileread(d(i).name));
