superagent is an HTTP client library for Node.js that provides a simple, flexible, and powerful API for making HTTP requests. It supports all major HTTP methods, and has a clean and easy-to-use interface for handling responses and errors.

what differentiates superagent from other http clients is its simple declarative API.

Symfony-http is a PHP library that provides a set of classes for working with HTTP requests and responses. It is part of the Symfony CMS framework, but can also be used independently.

// create a client object: 
$client = HttpClient::create();
// sent GET request
$response = $client->request('GET', 'https://httpbin.org/get');
