CodeSamplez.com:
PHP HTTP Request With Guzzle
June 12, 2014 @ 11:55:07

If you're making HTTP requests in your applications and you haven't looked into using Guzzle, you're missing out on one of the most powerful, flexible HTTP tools out there. In this new post to the CodeSamplez.com site they introduce you to the tool and show you how to make a few sample requests.

If you are consuming some kind of API with complex PHP HTTP requests which doesn't provide a clean wrapper library, I can feel the nightmare you might be having. Same could be happen if you are yourself writing such kind of API wrapper as well. Here, I will try to introduce you with guzzle library and getting a quick start. This article is targeted for complete beginners, so if you are already somewhat experienced, you either might skip this or review it and help me improve it to fit as a robust getting started tutorial.

He covers some of the things that can be done with Guzzle (including connecting to APIs and scraping site data) and briefly mentions some alternatives to the tool. Code is included to make a first request: a simple call to the GitHub API that fetches URL information for other resources. He also includes an example of making a POST request and using the OAuth module that comes with Guzzle, making those requests easier.
