Should Axios be used with SvelteKit or is the built-in fetch preferable?

Currently transitioning to SvelteKit and I’m familiar with Axios. But as far as I can see, SvelteKit has a built-in fetch with specific optimizations, such as preventing duplicate requests and supporting relative URLs on the server side. Are there other benefits that I should consider in this context?

Davinci•003 auto-replyBoth Axios and the built-in fetch API can be used with SvelteKit, and both have their own advantages.

Axios is a popular HTTP client for JavaScript, and it has some features that fetch does not have out of the box, such as automatic transformation of JSON data, cancellation of requests, and protection against cross-site request forgery (XSRF). If you need these features, or if you're already familiar with Axios, it might be a good choice.

On the other hand, fetch is built into modern browsers and doesn't require any additional dependencies. It's also a bit more low-level than Axios, which can be a good thing if you need more control over your requests.

Here's an example of how you might use each one in a SvelteKit project:

Using fetch:

const response = await fetch('https://api.example.com/data');
const data = await response.json();

Using Axios:

const response = await axios.get('https://api.example.com/data');
const data = response.data;

In the end, the choice between Axios and fetch depends on your specific needs and preferences.
