Webix.ajax() vs fetch


Is there an explanation why you create ajax() in webix ? Fetch exists, and seems to be the same as ajax()


Hello, @Alexandre_Nicolas
We have our own model for server requests in Webix for several reasons.
Firstly, fetch was first introduced in 2015 while webix in 2013.
Many our components support loading and saving and they should follow the same patterns.
Secondly, fetch is not supported on IE11 and we have had support for IE11.
Also, fetch differs from our ajax in error handling behavior (the first paragraph).
So, ajax is used for unified internal processes and backward compatibility. We do not have plans to change it in the near future. However, it’s possible to use fetch in your code. It will work fine.
