When you are on an account page such as eosio.token you can see that it has a contract deployed because it has the tables and ABI tabs.


Tables can be browsed for additional information if you're aware of how the table is structured. In the case of eosio.nft.ft I can view the factory.b table to see available Uniqs. Tables available can be gathered from the abi tab.

It's highly recommended to use curl requests against REST API Endpoints when reading data, or write a small script in one of your favorite programming languages.
