Fetch API?

Is it possible to use the Fetch API with node.js? I used this in previous parts of my course, and much prefer it to the way we are learning to use API's with node.js. Just thought I'd ask!

Just figured it out. Just used the "node-fetch" module. So much cleaner!

const fetch = require('node-fetch');

  .then(res => {return res.json()})
  .then(json => {console.log(json)})

Be sure to remove your personal API keys when you post code ;)

Nice work with node-fetch!

I was wondering about this too, and I though fetch only works on browsers, untill I found this question.

Thanks Nicolas.
