You’ll want to have a look at Fetch and/or Ajax calls in JavaScript for getting data from an API.

Use can use the fetch command like so:

      // Fetch data from https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/users
      fetch("https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/users")
        // Then get the JSON response 
        .then(response => {
          return response.json();
        })
        // Finally, convert JSON to a string
        .then(myJson => {
          console.log(JSON.stringify(myJson));
        });

A good practice API is this:
https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/users
