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.

HTTParty is a Ruby library that makes it easy to work with HTTP requests and responses. It is built on top of the Ruby standard library's Net::HTTP and provides a simple, easy-to-use interface for making requests and handling responses.

One of the main features of HTTParty is its ability to automatically parse response bodies as JSON, XML, or other formats. This allows developers to easily access the data returned by an API without having to manually parse the response.
