Get Started

ArcGIS REST JS can be deployed with a variety of build tools, including:


ArcGIS REST JS takes advantage of web standards that are supported in all modern desktop browsers and most mobile browsers.

Browser Support

ArcGIS REST JS is supported in the same browsers as the ArcGIS API for JavaScript.

  • Chrome
  • Edge
  • Firefox
  • Safari 9 and later
  • iOS Safari
  • IE11

IE11 and older mobile browsers require polyfills.

Node.js Support

ArcGIS REST JS is supported in Node.js 8.x and above. It requires additional packages to polyfill Fetch and FormData.

We recommend the ones below:

const fetch = require('node-fetch');
const { setDefaultRequestOptions, request } = require('@esri/arcgis-rest-request');

// use node-fetch for each request instead of relying on a global
setDefaultRequestOptions({ fetch })


Other versions of Node.js may also work with appropriate polyfills but we cannot guarantee support.
