Buzz is a lightweight PHP library for issuing HTTP requests. It is built on top of the PHP curl extension and is designed to be easy to use and flexible.

While buzz isn't as feature rich as other clients it still supports http2 and is relatively easy to use.

hrequests is a feature rich modern replacement for a famous requests library for Python. It provides a feature rich HTTP client capable of resisting popular scraper identification techniques: - Seamless transition between headless browser and http client based requests - Integrated HTML parser - Mimicking of real browser TLS fingerprints - Javascript rendering - HTTP2 support - Realistic browser headers

Example Use


use Buzz\Client\Curl;
use Buzz\Message\Request;
use Buzz\Message\Response;

$client = new Curl();
// GET request
$request = new Request('GET', 'http://httpbin.org/get');
$response = new Response();
$client->send($request, $response);
echo $response->getContent();

//POST request
$request = new Request('POST', '/api/resource', 'http://example.com');
$request->setContent(json_encode(['name' => 'John Doe']));
// we can also add headers or cookies:
$request->addHeader('Content-Type: application/json');
$request->addHeader('Cookie: name=foobar');
$response = new Response();
$client->send($request, $response);
echo $response->getContent();

// Buzz also supports http2 (see the 2.0 parameter)
$response = $client->sendRequest(
  new Request('GET', 'https://http2.golang.org/serverpush', [], null, '2.0')
);
hrequests has almost identical API and UX as requests and here's a quick overview:
import hrequests

# perform HTTP client requests
resp = hrequests.get('https://httpbin.org/html')
print(resp.status_code)
# 200

# use headless browsers and sessions:
session = hrequests.Session('chrome', version=122, os="mac")

# supports asyncio and easy concurrency
requests = [
    hrequests.async_get('https://www.google.com/', browser='firefox'),
    hrequests.async_get('https://www.duckduckgo.com/'),
    hrequests.async_get('https://www.yahoo.com/'),
    hrequests.async_get('https://www.httpbin.org/'),
]
responses = hrequests.map(requests, size=3)  # max 3 conccurency
