isomorphic-fetch Build Status

Fetch for node and Browserify. Built on top of GitHub's WHATWG Fetch polyfill.

Warnings

  • This adds fetch as a global so that its API is consistent between client and server.

For ease-of-maintenance and backward-compatibility reasons, this library will always be a polyfill. As a "safe" alternative, which does not modify the global, consider fetch-ponyfill.

Why Use Isomorphic Fetch

The Fetch API is currently not implemented consistently across browsers. This module will enable you to use fetch in your Node code in a cross-browser compliant fashion. The Fetch API is part of the Web platform API defined by the standards bodies WHATWG and W3C.

Installation

NPM

npm install --save isomorphic-fetch

Bower

bower install --save isomorphic-fetch

Usage

require('isomorphic-fetch');

fetch('//offline-news-api.herokuapp.com/stories')
	.then(function(response) {
		if (response.status >= 400) {
			throw new Error("Bad response from server");
		}
		return response.json();
	})
	.then(function(stories) {
		console.log(stories);
	});
