With Python? Here's some example code:

#
# first install requests from the command line: python -m pip install requests
#

import requests

def main():
    format = 'json'
    operation = 'temp_view'
    family = sample_GEDCOM_file()

    url = 'https://www.familyecho.com/api/'
    payload = {'format': format, 'operation': operation, 'family': family}

    response = requests.post(url, data=payload)

    print(response.text)

    
def sample_GEDCOM_file():
    return """

Thank you. Do you know anyway how to convert SQLite DBs to GEDCOM
Most people use a program like Family Echo so that they don't have to edit GEDCOM files. Where is the database coming from? What data is in it?
