Background: Currently I use ToolboxPro to call google books and parse it’s JSON response. In theory 6+ months ago the developer said that they were bring the tools to MacOS. In practice they appear to have gone away.
The Actual Challenge: What is an effective way to call a web service; wait for a response and then parse the JSON that it returns. I don’t mind paying for another toolbox, heck I will even contribute to an open source tool although I’ve never opened XCode in my life
