The items are retrieved from a JSON-formatted file and put directly into the table. This works because every item contains the required year and title keys. All additional data is added as non-key attributes for the item. The moviedata.json file can be downloaded here: """ from decimal import Decimal import json import boto3 def load_movies(movies, dynamodb=None): if not dynamodb: dynamodb = boto3.resource('dynamodb', endpoint_url="http://localhost:8000") table = dynamodb.Table('Movies') for movie in movies: year = int(movie['year']) title = movie['title'] print("Adding movie:", year, title) table.put_item(Item=movie) if __name__ == '__main__': with open("moviedata.json") as json_file: movie_list = json.load(json_file, parse_float=Decimal) load_movies(movie_list)
