Using wp_remote_get() to parse JSON from remote APIs

WordPress includes an exceptionally useful API called the HTTP API that can be used for sending data to and retrieving data from remote APIs.

For this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to use wp_remote_get(), one of the several functions included in the HTTP API, to retrieve and parse JSON data from a remote API.
