For me, I tend to put `node-fetch` onto `global.fetch` so that it's generally available like in modern browsers.  If you have to support older browsers, could always use `isomorphic-fetch` for shared modules.  I prefer to assume it's globally available and write to that.

It's not exactly the same, but close enough that I rarely have issue with client-server modules.

👍

I have been using Axios for my last few projects, and been pretty happy with it, but less dependencies is always better!
I wish fetch's api required less boilerplate, I would only use fetch too.

Yeah, it's a mixed bag, I usually wrap it up in something that works with my API structure better... (posting a gist to link now).  The normalizeRequest[1] default export handles a lot of the issues for me. (note using elvis operator[2] via babel).

With that in place, a lot of my api-client comes down to things like:

    import callAPI, { headRequest } from './request';

    export const check = id =>
      headRequest(`/petition/${encodeURIComponent(id.toUpperCase())}`).then(
        r => r && r.statusCode === 200
      );

    export const dashboard = id =>
      callAPI('GET', `/petition/${encodeURIComponent(id.toUpperCase())}/dashboard`);

    export const create = petition => callAPI('POST', '/petition', petition);
