Error Cannot find module xmlhttprequest

0 votes

This is my code:

var XMLHttpRequest = require("xmlhttprequest").XMLHttpRequest;
var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.open("GET", "//URL")
xhr.setRequestHeader("Content-Type: application/json", "Authorization: Basic //AuthKey");
xhr.send();

I am getting the error:

Cannot find module 'xmlhttprequest'

When I remove the first line, I am getting:

XMLHttpRequest is not defined

How to fix it?

Hello @kartik,

XMLHttpRequest is a built-in object in web browsers.

It is not distributed with Node; you have to install it separately,

  1. Install it with npm,

    npm install xmlhttprequest
  2. Now you can require it in your code.

    var XMLHttpRequest = require("xmlhttprequest").XMLHttpRequest;
    var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();

Hope it helps!! Thank you!!
