GET request from a REST-Service

To get and save the JSON data in Python there are many libraries we could use, I'm showing you how to do it with one of the more common ones "Requests". It works as follows:
import requests
jsondata = requests.get("").json()
These two lines are actually a fully working python program which extracts the data on the example URL via "get()" and forms it into a json via "json()". The result gets saved into the "jsondata" variable.
