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 any extra keyword arguments (the kwargs parameter) are 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 any extra keyword arguments are passed along to that method.


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