Using a block from "Web services..." ("Https") library

Can anyone show me how to use the block (see picture below)

from the "Web services..." library

in order to get first 10 items, each one consisting of 3 items (the topic_title, the category, the first_90_characters_of_the_post), reported as list.


  1. You don't need the HTTPS requests block for this. Just use the URL block
  2. Probably the best way to do this without a web scraping library would be regexes

The "strings" library was originally developed in a web-scraping project.

You can use Discourse API to get info from server:
