Error and blank page on Vue JS when creating a json file in assets

I went through a very strange issue. I have a vue project created with vue ui. I’m editing my code in visual studio.

i want to prototype and work with fake data before connecting my API. So i had the idea to create a json file in my assets folder to host my moock datas and import them to work on the UI.

but when i creating a Json file in my assets folder, and vue ui re render the project i have the following error.

app.js:1178 Uncaught Error: Cannot find module './assets/moockupdata.json'

i must confess i’m quiet stuck and confused with this issues. I would appriciate some help

Thanks a lot


I finally find a turnaround. Instead of behing stubborn and try at any cost to create a JSON file.

I went for a “mydata.js” file

with the inner structure

const data = {
  Mykey1: 'Myvalue1',
  HasKey1: true,
  otherdata: 'yes'

export default data

and import it from my Vue file with

import AwsConfig from '@/config/mydata.js.js'
export default {
