Parse html response with fetch API

We will learn how to read the html response returned from REST API end point which was called using the new fetch API.

The Fetch API provides an interface for fetching resources (including across the network).

If you have a REST API end point, which returns you the html response, then you can use the response.text() method to parse the html as shown below.

return fetch(url).then(function(res) {
    return res.text();
}).then(function(html) {
    console.log(`html = ${html}`);

response.text() takes a response stream and reads it to completion. It returns a promise that resolves with a text.
