Questions on the Javascript framework behind Vanilla

I was searching if there was another attempt for POST requests from JavaScript then the jQuery approach. I like to avoid jQuery if possible. In the file "quote.tsx" I found the following snippet:

           void api
               .post("/rich/quote", {
                   format: this.quoteData.format,
               .then(response => {
                   this.setState({ renderedBody: response.data.quote }, this.props.onRenderComplete);

When searching, I found a few references to api.post but also to apiv2.... What I was not able to find was where that is defined. I would like to know how to use that instead of the $.POST from jQuery or if it is thought or suited as a replacement.

Has anyone any idea on that?

    Our new JS stuff has been badly needing a quickstart guide from some time now. I should have some time to write documentation this sprint.

    Right now most of the docs we have our internal so I'll see what I can shuffle around.

    Sounds promising! More or less I know how to read the PHP part of Vanilla, but I'm totally lost when it comes to JS. It would be great to have some details documented anywhere.
