This article is great intro.
127.0.0.1 is localhost.
Can go to
Network tab to see details about requests and why they failed if they did fail. Can view headers etc
Web browsers will try to connect over port 80 by default.
[Best way to poll REST API? Timer seems fine. If the data is really changing frequently a WebSocket seems more appropriate.
If it’s changing infrequently but you wanna know right away, a silent push notification is the “right” way but that requires some infrastructure](https://twitter.com/_dte/status/1265606739564662785)
