I am able to construct a url that points to some data online in the JSON format.  See an example at [0].

I would like to work with this data as a dataframe in R.

I know that there is a package for handling json data [1] but it assumes the data is in a local file but It is not clear to me how to request the data from the web in an R script and get the json data converted into a data frame in R.

Can anyone provide a basic example or some guidance please?
