Loading Page HTML Fragments


In jQuery one can use the load function to load a HTML fraction via Ajax.

$( "#result" ).load( "ajax/test.html #container" );


In plain JavaScript this could be done as follow.

function selectFragment(selector, html) {
    let df = document.createDocumentFragment();
    let tmpDiv = document.createElement('div');
    tmpDiv.innerHTML = html;
    return df.querySelector(selector);

const url = "ajax/test.html";
const response = await fetch(url, { method: "GET" });
const responseHtml = await response.text();
const contentHtml = selectFragment("#container", responseHtml);
let target = document.querySelector("#result");
target.innerHTML = contentHtml.innerHTML;
