Nuxt uses ohmyfetch to expose globally the $fetch helper for making HTTP requests within your Vue app or API routes.

During server-side rendering, calling $fetch to fetch your internal API routes will directly call the relevant function (emulating the request), saving an additional API call.

Note that $fetch is the preferred way to make HTTP calls in Nuxt 3 instead of @nuxt/http and @nuxtjs/axios that are made for Nuxt 2.
