Contributors list

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); });
