How to get content of an IPFS folder as json?

I have a CID which contains Metadata links to several NFTs (~10000). I want to retrieve this as a json object. I was previously using IPFS Kubo RPC API ( but this gives a 504 Gateway Timeout error for big files. Any suggestions? Can I create a custom API using Helia to achieve the same?

@SoumerMo just FYI, posts at Helia - IPFS Forums are easier for us to find regarding help with Helia :slight_smile:

As far as fetching large content with Helia and converting to JSON, you could totally do that. Check out UnixFS | Documentation
