Hi there,

The ‘cURL’ instructions in that API documentation tell you how to name a parameter and what kind of values to pass to it. You just need to form a query string with your desired parameters.

Let me know if you have any questions about this!

I myself find it extremely handy if you download the json by using the keys on your keyboard Ctrl + s, then uploading that json to firebase database by making a new firebase project, and in the database where you can add data, go to the three dots on the right and click import json. Select the saved json and upload it. That way you can find paths easier if you are unsure or keep getting errors. I have had an issue before with lists where the actual json url did not show a zero in the paths to get to the list, so firebase really helps sometimes.

To retrieve the data simply follow this tutorial. For the piece of data you want, you enter its tag in the first get property block, in the second one you enter its next path and so on so fourth.

If there is only 1 path, then you only need one block. But remember the get object from json. This is extremely important so your app can understand the data it is getting.

Well to start off, the best thing to do is google designs of cool app designs, relating to what you are building. Once you get a sweet design you can make a rough testing project to test if the way you want blocks to work, that they will work. Then you work on implementing this into your application.
