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.

PHP library "Requests" is an HTTP library written in PHP, for making HTTP requests. It's heavily inspired by a popular Python library called Requests and aims for the same goals of simplifying HTTP client complexities.

It abstracts the complexities of making requests behind a simple API so that you can focus on interacting with services and consuming data in your application.

Requests allows you to send HTTP/1.1 HEAD, GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, and PATCH HTTP requests. You can add headers, form data, multipart files, and parameters with basic arrays, and access the response data in the same way.

Requests uses cURL and fsockopen, depending on what your system has available, but abstracts all the nasty stuff out of your way, providing a consistent API.

Features:

  • International Domains and URLs
  • Browser-style SSL Verification
  • Basic/Digest Authentication
  • Automatic Decompression
  • Connection Timeouts

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.
require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use Requests;

// make GET request
$response = Requests::get('https://httpbin.org/get');
echo $response->status_code;

// make POST request
$data = array('name' => 'Bob', 'age' => 35);
$options = array('auth' => array('user', 'pass'));
$response = Requests::post('https://httpbin.org/post', array(), $data, $options);
echo $response->status_code;
