Add Retries to Your API Calls

Whether you're making API calls from Node.js or in the browser, connection failures are going to happen eventually. Some request errors are valid. Maybe the endpoint was wrong or the client sent the wrong data.

While API and web service monitoring can inform you about the problem, a more active solution can take care of it for you.

Use the Node.js HTTP Module to Make a Request

The ecosystem around making requests in Node.js applications is huge. With countless libraries available, it can be helpful to understand why they exist. This helps to improve your understanding of Node.js as a whole, and makes choosing an HTTP client easier. In the first post in this series, we looked at creating servers using Node's http module.
