Quote Generator user story question

I have a question about the follow user story for the quote generator project:

User Story #8: When the #new-quote button is clicked, my quote machine should fetch a new quote and display it in the #text element.

Does the project expect the actual use for the fetch API or just to pick a randomized quote that’s stored in a variable locally? I can’t see how a new quote can be fetched unless we created our own API to serve requests.

No, it doesn’t check if you use the fetch API, but it checks if the text changes, so the second one, pick a randomized quote

Just as an aside, there are plenty of free public quote APIs you can use.
