You can use the lizmap_api class of to get the Lizmap JSON configuration for a specific project.

For example:

import sys,os
qgisPrefixPath = "/usr/local/"
sys.path.append(os.path.join(qgisPrefixPath, "share/qgis/python/"))
sys.path.append(os.path.join(qgisPrefixPath, "share/qgis/python/plugins/"))
os.environ["QGIS_DEBUG"] = '-1'
os.environ['QGIS_PREFIX_PATH'] = qgisPrefixPath

from qgis.core import QgsApplication
QgsApplication.setPrefixPath(qgisPrefixPath, True)
app = QgsApplication([], False)

# Run the lizmap config exporter
from lizmap import lizmap
project_path = '/home/mdouchin/test_a_sup.qgs'
lv = lizmap.LizmapConfig(project_path)
if lv:
    # get the JSON content with default values
    json_content = lv.to_json()

    # OR:

    # get the JSON content with user defined values
    my_global_options = {
        'mapScales': [1000, 2500, 5000, 10000, 25000, 50000, 100000, 250000], # set the map scales

        'osmStamenToner': True, # add the OSM Stamen Toner baselayer
        'print': True # activate the print tool
    my_layer_options = {
        'MY LAYER NAME': {
            'title': 'My new title', # change title
