How to download files with Axios

A simple example using the Blob() constructor:


export function someFunction(values) {

  return (dispatch) => {

    ...

    const method = 'GET';

    const url = 'http://go.api/download_file';

    ...

    axios

      .request({

        url,

        method,

        responseType: 'blob', //important

      })

      .then(({ data }) => {

        const downloadUrl = window.URL.createObjectURL(new Blob([data]));

        const link = document.createElement('a');

        link.href = downloadUrl;

        link.setAttribute('download', 'file.zip'); //any other extension

        document.body.appendChild(link);

        link.click();

        link.remove();

      });

  };

}
