I love to explore around some technology over the weekend.
This time around I tried out Jupyter Notebooks using Python VS Code extension.
So things you need:-
To start off with, I tried to make some make REST API calls using Jupyter nb in VS code so I picked up Github Rest Apis.
The file extension for Jupyter notebook is .ipynb
Since some of the Github Apis doesn't require to have authentication to access the data, I selected Github users API.
Steps to get the API response
In the first cell, import the requests module inside the notebook
Declare the constants for endpoint
Make an API call using "requests" module
Get back the response and access it via response.text
You can see how I did this in the below example:-
Hope you enjoyed this article. I will come up with new tech learning articles.
Thanks for reading this.
