The recommended method of installing this library is via Composer.

Run the following command from your project root:

$ composer require duncan3dc/guzzle-tools

Quick Examples


When working with Guzzle I got bored of searching for the solution to output the request/response every time I wanted a quick debug, this library makes it easy:

$client = \duncan3dc\Guzzle\Factory::getClient();

$client->request("GET", "http://example.com/");

Running the above would output this on the command line:

GET / HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: GuzzleHttp/6.2.1 curl/7.47.0 PHP/7.1.0RC3
Host: example.com
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Request Building

As of version 6.0.0 Guzzle no longer offers a way to build a request instance to send later, this library provides a simple workaround:

$request = \duncan3dc\Guzzle\Request::make("GET", "https://example.com/", [
    "query" =>  [
        "date"  =>  date("Y-m-d"),

# There's also an alias on the main factory class
$request = \duncan3dc\Guzzle\Factory::request("GET", "https://example.com/");

Simple Requests

When all you need is a basic GET/POST, you can use the Http class:

$response = \duncan3dc\Guzzle\Http::get("https://example.com/", [
    "date"  =>  date("Y-m-d"),

$response = \duncan3dc\Guzzle\Http::post("https://example.com/", [
    "date"  =>  date("Y-m-d"),
