How do I make an HTTP request in Javascript?

There are several ways to make an HTTP request in JavaScript. Here are a few options:

  1. Using the XMLHttpRequest object: This is a built-in object in JavaScript that allows you to make HTTP requests. Here’s an example of how to use it:
var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.open('GET', 'https://example.com/api/endpoint');
xhr.onload = function () {
  if (xhr.status === 200) {
  1. Using the fetch function: This is a newer way to make HTTP requests that is supported by modern browsers. It returns a Promise that resolves to the response of the request. Here’s an example of how to use it:
  .then(response => response.text())
  .then(data => console.log(data));
  1. Using a library or framework: There are many libraries and frameworks that provide higher-level abstractions for making HTTP requests. Some popular ones include Axios, jQuery, and Angular HTTP. These libraries often provide a more convenient interface for making requests and handling responses, but they add an additional dependency to your project.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
