const imageURL = 'https://i.imgur.com/TcnbPWb.jpg';
const formData = new FormData();
const xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();

formData.append('image', imageURL);

xhr.addEventListener('readystatechange', function() {
  if (this.readyState === this.DONE) {
    const response = JSON.parse(this.responseText);

xhr.open('POST', 'https://trace.moe/api/search');

The above code snippet sends a POST request with the image URL data to the Trace.moe API, parses the JSON response, and logs the docs property.
