Posting memes until I get my master's degree day 303 meme 505

Submitted to r/wholesomememes by AskTrashMeme


This example shows a one-line fetch call to an API which destructures out some specific data object properties for use in the HTML rendering below.

The Code:

//src/pages/experiments/meme-fetch.astro
---
import BaseLayout from '../../layouts/BaseLayout.astro';
const { title, url, preview, subreddit, author } = await fetch(`https://meme-api.herokuapp.com/gimme/wholesomememes`)
  .then(response => response.json())
---
<BaseLayout title="Meme Fetching">
  <main>
    <h2>{title}</h2>
    <p style="font-size: 0.8rem">Submitted to r/{subreddit} by {author}</p>
    <img src="{preview[1]}">
    <hr>
  </main>
</BaseLayout>

Note that the response object of the API call is of the form:

{
  "postLink": "https://redd.it/ovbg8r",
  "subreddit": "wholesomememes",
  "title": "Thank you dad",
  "url": "https://i.redd.it/kx6dpmh6wie71.jpg",
