How to fetch fields via rest api using python

hey , a beginner here in using rest apis ... I have a simple problem statement, I want to fetch all the fields name in a particular project , using python.

using :

allfields=jira.fields() , 

fetches all the fields of all the projects.

 

and  using :

 /rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projectKeys=TEST&expand=projects.issuetypes.fields

 this fetches only the visible fields , but still I'm not getting how to convert this into python code.

Please help.

Well, that url will just throw some JSON back at you, so you can use standard python functions can parse it.

I'm told the python at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOCSPRINT/The+Simplest+Possible+JIRA+REST+Examples gives you a good start.
