Using APIs with Python

Python & APIs

With the modules requests and json it is easy to get data from APIs with Python. Using the above introduced methods for sequencing, the following example requests a response from https://www.boredapi.com/:

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import requests
import json

response = requests.get("https://www.boredapi.com/api/activity")
data     = response.json()

print(json.dumps(data, sort_keys=True, indent=4))

# print(data["activity"])
