Example on how to render multiple responses into a route in node.js
const express = require('express')
const app = express()
const path = require('path')
const fetch = require('node-fetch')
const PORT = process.env.PORT || 3000
app.get('/api/user', (req, res) => {
res.json({ name: 'Richard' });
});
app.get('/api/books', (req, res) => {
res.json({ books: 545 });
});
function get(url) {
return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
fetch(url)
.then(res => res.json())
.then(data => resolve(data))
.catch(err => reject(err))
})
}
app.get('/', (req, res) => {
Promise.all([
get(`http://localhost:${PORT}/api/user`),
get(`http://localhost:${PORT}/api/books`)
]).then(([user, {books}]) =>
res.send({
user: user.name,
books
}))
.catch(err => res.send('Ops, something has gone wrong'))
})
app.use(express.static(__dirname + '/'))
app.listen(PORT, () => console.log(`Listening on http://localhost:${PORT}`))

Will this work if I replace line 26, 27 with the following?

get('/api/user'),
get('/api/books')

Yes! Those URLs are only an example, you'd only need it running locally. It all depends on your server's configuration and the way you configure your client.
