Nodemcu saving & loading JSON in Spiffs

Hi, I use Nodemcu V3 and trying to save a JSON file on the SPIFFS.
I run the saving function after submit my Form and loading them on the setup, with arduinojson 6 library.

  • The first step I try with the ArduinoJson --> JsonConfigFile, it's for an SD card, I try to change it for the SPIFFS.
    After manual reset the controller all data look like without any changing.
  • The second step, I check with ESP8266 --> ConfigFile, the example look like working.
    I don't know after reset because the example saving data in the saveConfig function.

In my code I put the saveConfig() after Form submit and loading them in the setup.
After manually reset the controller all data still without changing.

I didn't find how to do that successfully.
My final code I am trying is :

#include <ArduinoJson.h>
#include "FS.h"
#include <LittleFS.h>

int Usermax0,Usermax1,Usermax2,Usermax3,Usermax4,Usermax5,Usermax6,Usermax7,Usermax8,Usermax9,Usermax10,Usermax11,Usermax12,Usermax13,Usermax14,Usermax15;
int Usermin0,Usermin1,Usermin2,Usermin3,Usermin4,Usermin5,Usermin6,Usermin7,Usermin8,Usermin9,Usermin10,Usermin11,Usermin12,Usermin13,Usermin14,Usermin15;

bool loadConfiguration() {
  File configFile ="/config.json", "r");
  if (!configFile) {
    Serial.println("Failed to open config file");
    return false;

  size_t size = configFile.size();
  if (size > 1024) {
    Serial.println("Config file size is too large");
    return false;

  // Allocate a buffer to store contents of the file.
  std::unique_ptr<char[]> buf(new char[size]);

  // We don't use String here because ArduinoJson library requires the input
  // buffer to be mutable. If you don't use ArduinoJson, you may as well
  // use configFile.readString instead.
  configFile.readBytes(buf.get(), size);

  StaticJsonDocument<512> doc;
  auto error = deserializeJson(doc, buf.get());
  if (error) {
    Serial.println("Failed to parse config file");
    return false;

  Usermax0 = doc["Usermax0"];
  Usermin0 = doc["Usermin0"];
  Usermax1 = doc["Usermax1"];
  Usermin1 = doc["Usermin1"];
  Usermax2 = doc["Usermax2"];
  Usermin2 = doc["Usermin2"];
  Usermax3 = doc["Usermax3"];
  Usermin3 = doc["Usermin3"];
  Usermax4 = doc["Usermax4"];
  Usermin4 = doc["Usermin4"];
 Usermax5 = doc["Usermax5"];
  Usermin5 = doc["Usermin5"];
  Serial.print("Usermax0: "); Serial.println(Usermax0);
  Serial.print("Usermin0: "); Serial.println(Usermin0);
  Serial.print("Usermax1: "); Serial.println(Usermax1);
  Serial.print("Usermin1: "); Serial.println(Usermin1);
  Serial.print("Usermax2: "); Serial.println(Usermax2);
  Serial.print("Usermin2: "); Serial.println(Usermin2);
  Serial.print("Usermax3: "); Serial.println(Usermax3);
  Serial.print("Usermin3: "); Serial.println(Usermin3);
  Serial.print("Usermax4: "); Serial.println(Usermax4);
  Serial.print("Usermin4: "); Serial.println(Usermin4);
  Serial.print("Usermax5: "); Serial.println(Usermax5);
  Serial.print("Usermin5: "); Serial.println(Usermin5);

  return true;

bool saveConfiguration() {
  StaticJsonDocument<512> doc;

  doc["Usermax0"] = Usermax0;
  doc["Usermin0"] = Usermin0;
  doc["Usermax1"] = Usermax1;
  doc["Usermin1"] = Usermin1;
  doc["Usermax2"] = Usermax2;
  doc["Usermin2"] = Usermin2;
  doc["Usermax3"] = Usermax3;
  doc["Usermin3"] = Usermin3;
  doc["Usermax4"] = Usermax4;
  doc["Usermin4"] = Usermin4;
  doc["Usermax5"] = Usermax5;
  doc["Usermin5"] = Usermin5;

  File configFile ="/config.json", "w");
  if (!configFile) {
    Serial.println("Failed to open config file for writing");
    return false;

  serializeJson(doc, configFile);
  return true;
