When a response contains valid JSON, just use the
.json() method on the
Response object to get the decoded result:
response = requests.get('http://example.com/') decoded_result = response.json()
However, this does not fail gracefully; it will raise a
JSONDecodeError if the response object is not JSON-parseable.
You may wish to first check the content MIME type, for more graceful error handling:
if 'application/json' in response.headers['Content-Type']: decoded_result = response.json() else: non_json_result = response.data
