Mashups using CORS and responseType='document'
Sep 8th, 2012
I always forget that you can request a resource as a
Document using XHR2. Combine this with CORS and things get pretty nice. No need to parse HTML strings and turn them into DOM yourself.
For html5rocks.com, we support CORS on all of our content. It’s trivial to pull down the tutorials page and query the DOM directly using
querySelectorAll() on the XHR’s response.
