The Go library "req" is a simple and easy-to-use library for making HTTP requests in Go. It is designed to make working with HTTP requests as simple as possible, by providing a clean and consistent API for handling various types of requests, including GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE.

One of the key features of req is its support for handling JSON data. The library automatically serializes and deserializes JSON data, making it easy to work with JSON data in your Go applications. Additionally, it supports multipart file uploads and automatic decompression of gzip and deflate encoded responses.

req also includes a number of convenience functions for working with common HTTP request types, such as sending GET and POST requests, handling redirects, and setting headers and query parameters. The library can also be easily extended with custom middleware and request handlers.

Overall, req is a powerful and flexible library that makes it easy to work with HTTP requests in Go. It is well-documented and actively maintained, making it a great choice for any Go project that needs to work with HTTP requests.

Guzzle is a PHP HTTP client library that makes it easy to send HTTP requests and trivial to integrate with web services. It allows you to send HTTP/1.1 requests with various methods like GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, and others.

Guzzle also supports sending both synchronous and asynchronous requests, caching, and even has built-in support for OAuth 1.0a. Additionally, it can handle different HTTP errors and handle redirects automatically. It also has built-in support for serializing and deserializing data using formats like JSON and XML, as well as sending multipart file uploads.

Overall Guzzle is an easy to use and powerful library for working with HTTP in PHP.

Example Use


req.DevMode() //  Use Client.DevMode to enable debugging details

// There are 2 ways to use req (like many other http clients)
// First way is to create a persistent session client:
client := req.C(). // defaults like timeout and headers can be set for the whole session
    SetUserAgent("my-custom-client").
    SetTimeout(5 * time.Second)
// defaults can be overriden and extended in each request
resp, err := client.R(). // Use R() to create a request and set with chainable request settings.
    SetHeader("Accept", "application/vnd.github.v3+json").
    SetPathParam("username", "imroc").
    SetQueryParam("page", "1").
    SetResult(&result). // Unmarshal response into struct automatically if status code >= 200 and <= 299.
    SetError(&errMsg). // Unmarshal response into struct automatically if status code >= 400.
    EnableDump(). // Enable dump at request level to help troubleshoot, log content only when an unexpected exception occurs.
    Get("https://api.github.com/users/{username}/repos")

// Alternatively, it can be used as is without establishing a client

resp := client.Get("https://api.github.com/users/{username}/repos"). // Create a GET request with specified URL.
    SetHeader("Accept", "application/vnd.github.v3+json").
    SetPathParam("username", "imroc").
    SetQueryParam("page", "1").
    SetResult(&result).
    SetError(&errMsg).
    EnableDump().
    Do() // Send request with Do.
use GuzzleHttp\Client;

// Create a client session:
$client = new Client();
// can also set session details like headers
$client = new Client([
    'headers' => [
        'User-Agent' => 'webscraping.fyi',
    ]
]);

// GET request:
$response = $client->get('http://httpbin.org/get');
// print all details
var_dump($response);
// or the important bits
printf("status: %s\n", $response->getStatusCode());
printf("headers: %s\n", json_encode($response->getHeaders(), JSON_PRETTY_PRINT));
printf("body: %s", $response->getBody()->getContents());

// POST request
$response = $client->post(
    'https://httpbin.org/post',
// for JSON use json argument:
    ['json' => ['query' => 'foobar', 'page' => 2]]
// or formdata use form_params:
//  ['form_params' => ['query' => 'foobar', 'page' => 2]]
);

// For ASYNC requests getAsync function can be used:
$promise1 = $client->getAsync('https://httpbin.org/get');
$promise2 = $client->getAsync('https://httpbin.org/get?foo=bar');
// await it:
$results = Promise\unwrap([$promise1, $promise2]);
foreach ($results as $result) {
    echo $result->getBody();
}
// or add promise callback
Promise\each([$promise1, $promise2], function ($response, $index, $callable) {
    echo $response->getBody();
});
