import "experimental/json"
import "array"

response = requests.get(url: "https://api.agify.io", params: ["name": ["nathaniel"]])

// api.agify.io returns JSON with the form
//
// {
//    name: string,
//    age: number,
//    count: number,
// }
//
// Define a data variable that parses the JSON response body into a Flux record.
data = json.parse(data: response.body)

// Use array.from() to construct a table with one row containing our response data.
// We do not care about the count so only include name and age.
array.from(rows: [{name: data.name, age: data.age}])
