Faraday is a Ruby gem that provides a simple and flexible interface for making HTTP requests. It allows you to create a Faraday connection object, which you can use to send requests and receive responses.

Faraday abstracts away the details of the underlying HTTP client library, so you can use it with different libraries such as Net::HTTP, HTTPClient, typhoeus and others.

Since Faraday can adapt many other HTTP clients it's very popular choice in web scraping.

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


# GET requests
response = Faraday.get('http://httpbingo.org')
put response.status
put response.headers
put response.body

# or use a persistent client session:
conn = Faraday.new(
  url: 'http://httpbin.org/get',
  params: {param: '1'},
  headers: {'Content-Type' => 'application/json'}
)

# POST requests
response = conn.post('/post') do |req|
  req.params['limit'] = 100
  req.body = {query: 'chunky bacon'}.to_json
end
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
