API Reference

Requesting a minified polyfill bundle

Get a bundle of polyfills which have been minified ready for production website use. This endpoint responds with a JavaScript file containing the polyfills which should be served to the requesting browser.

Request

Method GET
Path /v3/polyfill.min.js
Querystring
features

Comma-separated list of the polyfills which you want to include in the response if the requesting browser does not support the feature natively.

Available feature names are shown on the features page.

|always
Polyfill should be included regardless of whether it is required by the user-agent making the request. If there are multiple browser-specific variants of the polyfill, the default one will be used for browser that doesn't actually require the polyfill. In some cases where the only way of implementing a polyfill is to use browser-specific proprietary technology, the default variant may be empty.
|gated
If the polyfill is included in the bundle, it will be accompanied by a feature detect, which will only execute the polyfill if the native API is not present.

Omitting or setting to an empty string is equivalent to the value "default", which is an alias for a curated list of polyfills.

callback
Name of the JavaScript function to call after the polyfill bundle is loaded.
unknown
What to do for browsers which are not supported. Possible values are `ignore` and `polyfill`. Setting to `ignore` will return no polyfills to unsuported browsers. Setting to `polyfill` will return all requested polyfills to unsupported browsers. Default is `polyfill`.
flags
Configuration settings for every polyfill being requested. Possible values are `always` and `gated`. Setting `always` will return all requested polyfills to every browser. Setting `gated` will wrap every polyfill within a feature detection, only adding the polyfill if the feature was not detected. To enable both settings, separate them with a comma E.G. `always,gated`.
Headers
User-Agent

If no ua querystring value is configured, the User-Agent header's value will be used for polyfill targeting instead.

Accept-Encoding

If no compression querystring value is configured, the Accept-Encoding header's value will be used to decide if compression should be used on the polyfill
