    a polyfill for http://www.w3.org/TR/eventsource/

    Yup, that is an issue. However, one can theoretically get rid of this issue by using making use of the fetch API to mock this as you stated. An easy way would be to consider a polyfill such as https://github.com/Yaffle/EventSource and customize it to force the use of fetch. I've not looked into it thoroughly so I may be wrong here.

    ⬆ Dead simple, dependency-less, spec-compliant server-side events implementation for Node, written in TypeScript.

    I've been working on a library that makes working with server-sent events easier on the server-side that can hopefully be relevant here.
