Excon is a Ruby library for making HTTP requests. It is designed to be fast and efficient, and is often used as a building block for other Ruby libraries and frameworks.

One of the main features of Excon is its support for persistent connections, which allows it to reuse the same connection for multiple requests, reducing the overhead of establishing a new connection for each request.

Excon also supports streaming requests and responses, which allows you to read or write data to the server incrementally, without having to load the entire response into memory at once.

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.

Example Use


require 'excon'

# GET requests
response = Excon.get('https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts/1')
puts response.body
puts response.status
puts response.headers

# POST requests
response = Excon.post('https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts',
  :body => { :title => 'foo', :body => 'bar', :userId => 1 }.to_json,
  :headers => { 'Content-Type' => 'application/json' } )
puts response.body
require 'httparty'

# get request:
response = HTTParty.get('http://httpbin.org/get')
puts response.body
puts response.code
puts response.message
puts response.headers.inspect

# post request
response = HTTParty.post('http://httpbin.org/post',
  :body => { :title => 'foo', :body => 'bar', :userId => 1 }.to_json,
  :headers => { 'Content-Type' => 'application/json' } )

puts response.body
