var context = SP.ClientContext.get_current(); 

throws this error,

Uncaught ReferenceError: SP is not defined

the snippet works fine in SharePoint 2013, Are there .js that I need to load? if yes, how can I make this to work!



Try to load the sp.js as the following

var clientContext;

$(document).ready(function () {
        SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', Getdata);

function Getdata() {
        try {
            clientContext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();                   
        catch (err) {

If the above code do not working try to load init.js, SP.Runtime.js and SP.js as the following

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/4.0/1/MicrosoftAjax.js"></script>

        var scriptbase = "http://SiteURL" + "/_layouts/15/";
       //Do not change the order, scripts should load by order.  
     $.getScript(scriptbase + "init.js",
            function () {
                $.getScript(scriptbase + "SP.Runtime.js",
                   function () {
                $.getScript(scriptbase + "SP.js", Getdata);

function Getdata()
   var context = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
    // your code


      //On success function

      //On fail function
