Idiom #91 Load JSON file into object

Read from the file data.json and write its content into the object x.
Assume the JSON data is suitable for the type of x.

    with {:ok, body} <- File.read(filename),
         {:ok, json} <- Poison.decode(body), do: {:ok, json}

(require '[jsonista.core :refer [read-value]])
(def x (read-value (file "data.json")))

using Newtonsoft.Json.Linq;
