Wikipedia API help!

So I am starting the Wikipedia viewer project and any type of advice or pointers will be very helpful. Mainly I would like to have advice on how to use the Wikipedia API cause I have no clue how to properly utilize it so anybody that would like to explain it to me would be of lots of help.

Here is a link so far (it does nothing as of now):

Yes, API calls are often confusing. Some are more confusing than others.

But looking at your pen, I don’t see any javascript. Have you tried writing the call?

Here is another resource:

This project has also been a large source of frustration for me. I wrote an article about the request as well as fixing issues that pop up with CORS. :smile_cat:
