Load a JSON data file from a file or URL. When loading a file, the path can be in the data directory, relative to the current working directory (sketch_path()), or an absolute path. When loading from a URL, the json_path parameter must start with http:// or https://.

When loading JSON data from a URL, the data is retrieved using the Python requests library with the get method, and the kwargs parameter is passed along to that method. When loading JSON data from a file, the data is loaded using the Python json library with the load method, and again the kwargs parameter passed along to that method.


    json_path: Union[str, Path],  # url or file path for JSON data file
    **kwargs: dict[str, Any]
) -> Any
