You could actually hack proper a HTTP request with Pd vanilla (you
wouldn't even need [mrpeach/tcpclient], [netsend -b] would probably
suffice), but doing everything through TLS makes things much more

I'd rather go with something that implements TLS natively, like

For instance:

[declare -path purest_json]

[sslcheck 0, GET https://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/observations/metar/stations/CYDA.TXT (

returns a symbol containing data from above URL. You may use some [list
fromsymbol] trickery to do actually something useful with the data.
