Get file content from a URL? $jsonData = json_decode(file_get_contents(‘https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=p3&chs=250×100&chd=t:60,40&chl=Hello|World&chof=json’)); However, if allow_url_fopen isn’t enabled on your system, you could read the data via CURL as follows: By using curl method:: $curlSession = curl_init(); curl_setopt($curlSession, CURLOPT_URL, ‘https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=p3&chs=250×100&chd=t:60,40&chl=Hello|World&chof=json’); curl_setopt($curlSession, CURLOPT_BINARYTRANSFER, true); curl_setopt($curlSession, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); $jsonData = json_decode(curl_exec($curlSession)); curl_close($curlSession);
