I have written a code on my server(NodeJS) that will send a .csv file to the frontend with express res.download(path). I would like to know how I can handle the response with fetch API that will allow the frontend to download the file(.csv) sent.
I am using reactJs on my frontend.
I was able to solve this by using the downloadJs on my frontend
import download from 'downloadjs' ... //get request fetch(url).then(res => res.blob()) .then(blob => download(blob, 'name of file', 'data type')) // this line automatically starts a download operation .catch(err => console.log(err));
I hope this helps you
