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.

http is an HTTP library for Ruby, it's a fork of the Ruby standard library Net::HTTP. It is designed to provide a more modern and consistent API for making HTTP requests and handling responses.

One of the main goals of http is to simplify the process of making HTTP requests and handling responses. It provides a consistent API for making requests and handling responses across different versions of Ruby and different HTTP libraries, making it easier to write cross-compatible code.

http supports all the standard HTTP methods such as GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, and PATCH, and allows you to set headers, query parameters, and request bodies.



Example Use

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

$client = new Curl();
// GET request
$request = new Request('GET', '');
$response = new Response();
$client->send($request, $response);
echo $response->getContent();

//POST request
$request = new Request('POST', '/api/resource', '');
$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', '', [], null, '2.0')
require 'http'

# GET request
response = HTTP.get("")
puts response.body
puts response.status
puts response.headers

# POST request
response ="", json: { title: 'foo', body: 'bar', userId: 1 })
puts response.body
