How do I get JSON using the Python Requests?

To request JSON string from the server using the Python Requests library, call the request.get() or request.post() method and pass the target URL as a first parameter. The Python Requests Library has a built-in JSON decoder and automatically converts JSON strings into a Python dictionary. If JSON decoding fails, then response.json() will throw a "requests.exceptions.JSONDecodeError" exception; for example when response code 204 (no content) or JSON contains invalid JSON. In this Python JSON example, we send a GET request to the ReqBin echo URL and receive JSON data in the response. The custom 'Accept: application/json' header tells the server that the client expects a JSON. Click Execute to run Python Requests JSON Example online and see the result.
