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.
  • You must bring your own ES6 Promise compatible polyfill, I suggest es6-promise.

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.

Installation

NPM

npm install --save isomorphic-fetch es6-promise

Bower

bower install --save isomorphic-fetch es6-promise

Usage

require('es6-promise').polyfill();
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);
	});
