POST request in JS Script

Recommended Posts



I try to make a POST request in a "Run Script" Action using JS. I tried doing it with fetch() or an XMLHttpRequest but I get errors stating XMLHttpRequest and fetch are undefined variables. I think there's something I don't get about scripting yet and how they work and what we have access to. Hopefully somebody can enlighten me.

JS is a special case. A lot of the functions you’re used to using are properties of the browser environment. They don’t exist when the script is running in Alfred.


I’d suggest using a language that does have HTTP libraries (Ruby, Python etc.) or using the curl command.
