Template literals are very useful. A more advanced form of template literals are tagged templates. Karin works in all major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Edge, Safari, and Opera). Modern browsers and JavaScript engines support tag templates. It is also compatible with Node.js. The package uses the Fetch API, make sure you have a polyfill to support older browsers. Recommend to use github/fetch


import React from "react";
import { get } from "karin";

export default class Index extends React.Component {
  static async getInitialProps() {
    const { data } = await get``;
    return { stars: data.stargazers_count };

  render() {
    return (
        <p> {this.props.stars} ⭐️</p>


via NPM

npm i karin

via CDN (unpkg)

UMD library exposed as Karin

const { get, post } = Karin;

Import paths

import { get, post } from "karin/build/node";
import { get, post } from "karin/build/browser/index.umd.js";

Make a get request

The response data - By default, if the response data type is Application/JSON, the response will be parsed into JSON

import { get } from "karin";

  .then(res => console.log(res))
  .catch(err => console.error(err));

Make a post request

The post data - If the data is an object, it will be stringified

The response data - By default, if the response data type is application/json, the response will be parsed into JSON

Note that the data to be sent is the last item.

import { post } from "karin";

const user = {
  username: "vaheqelyan",
  password: "XXXX"

post`http://localhost:3000/register ${user}`
  .then(res => console.log(res))
  .catch(err => console.log(err));

Add Header in HTTP Request

post`${{apiKey: config.apiKey}}
Content-Type: application/json
Accept: application/json
XXX: xxx

  title: 'Test Message',
  body: 'This is a test of the messaging system.'

Thanks to Ken Bellows for the idea.
