HTTP requests are a crucial part of any web application that’s communicating with a back-end server. The front end needs some data, so it asks for it via a network HTTP request (or Ajax, as it tends to be called), and the server returns an answer. Almost every website these days does this in some fashion.
With a larger site, we can expect to see more of this. More data, more APIs, and more special circumstances. As sites grow like this, it is important to stay organized. One classic concept is DRY (short for Don’t Repeat Yourself), which is the process of abstracting code to prevent repeating it over and over. This is ideal because it often allows us to write something once, use it in multiple places, and update in a single place rather than each instance.
We might also reach for libraries to help us. For Ajax, axios is a popular choice. You might already be familiar with it, and even use it for things like independent POST and GET requests while developing.
