I need help - trying to make a modal that responds to a JSON attribute from the GitHub REST API

First of all - i am really sorry if this question is irrelevant, but i am a bit stuck here. I am building a small project for training - i need a page with a search bar, where the user would write a GitHub username. Then, all the GitHub accounts avatar that fit that criteria would appear.

The user would then click one of them, and the profile would appear, followed by the repositories (both of those would be clickable, redirecting to GitHub’s site). I have already done most of it, but i am really stuck on the modal part.

I don’t know how i could use JSON to make the modal open specifically the user that’s been clicked, and also show their info.

Could someone help, please? Thanks everyone :grinning:

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at https://www.freecodecamp.org/learn.

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / repl.it / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:
