Many apps need to load resources from a remote URL. You may want to make a POST request to a REST API, or you may need to fetch a chunk of static content from another server.

Remember that NodeGui apps do not run in a browser and hence do not have access to browser apis. NodeGui app is essentially a Node.js app.

And in a typical Node.js application you would use a third party library like axios, node-fetch or frisbee for achieving this functionality.

Using Node Fetch

Node Fetch is a light-weight module that brings window.fetch to Node.js.

An example usage would look like this:

const fetch = require("node-fetch");
async function getData() {
try {
let response = await fetch("");
let responseJson = await response.json();
return responseJson.somecontent;
} catch (error) {

Take a look at the Node Fetch docs for a full list of properties.
