Farewell to XMLHttpRequest; Long live window.fetch!

The days of XMLHttpRequest and weird choices for capitalization are numbered. WhatWG has a spec ready for some time now to replace it: window.fetch. Just look at how easy it is.



Just look at how nicer that is all with soon-to-be native APIs. But you don't have to wait, because there is a polyfill available. Start using the Fetch Polyfill in your projects today.

I write here about programming, how to program better, things I think are neat and are related to programming. I might write other things at my personal website.

I am happily employed by the excellent Caktus Group, located in beautiful and friendly Carrboro, NC, where I work with Python, Django, and Javascript.
