An Interface to IMF (International Monetary Fund) Data JSON API

A straightforward interface for accessing the IMF (International Monetary Fund) data JSON API, available at <>. This package offers direct access to the primary API endpoints: Dataflow, DataStructure, and CompactData. And, it provides an intuitive interface for exploring available dimensions and attributes, as well as querying individual time-series datasets. Additionally, the package implements a rate limit on API calls to reduce the chances of exceeding service limits (limited to 10 calls every 5 seconds) and encountering response errors.
