When I have to call APIs in my application I use got which is super easy and requires so much less time to code, simple and straightforward syntax, easy to read/write. I used to have request in my code and which is now not maintained and it was super easy to migrate from it. The best part about this library is it is designed specifically for backend and lives up to the expectations. I got so many features over request package which it offers, pagination API and retries on failures are so helpful. Easy to migrate and documentation is very detailed. The only downside is it requires node 12 if you have old versions you might go with other HTTP packages.
I have started using this package while the request package deprecated. A simple and powerful library for http request with complete integration notes. Supports all the http verbs. And one interesting feature is the retry option. No need to retry in our code manually after failure. We can give the retry option for the needed status codes. Based on this it will automatically retry and give the result. This will be helpful on our application while there is network issues.
A powerful library for creating HTTP/s and almost all API requests using NodeJS. It maintains great communication between the frontend and backend. A great alternative to the "request" package. Loved it.
The best http/s request library that I used most of the time while building node.js application. Previously I have used 'request' package which is now deprecated that's why I chose this package. It is almost all the features and a very powerful library.
Very similar to Axios, they got the same functionalities (Got supports HTTP/2 !). Very easy to use and it the documentation is clear. Perfect to connect your application to your back-end.
