A PHP 5.3-compatible fork of Guzzle 6.


Sadly, 60% of all PHP web servers still run PHP 5.4 and lower, but Guzzle needs PHP 5.5 or higher. This fork makes Guzzle 6 compatible with PHP 5.3.29 through 7.1.

How to Use This Fork

Usage is identical to guzzle/guzzle, except that the code in this library is namespaced under Hough\Guzzle instead of GuzzleHttp.

Guzzle is a PHP HTTP client that makes it easy to send HTTP requests and trivial to integrate with web services.

  • Simple interface for building query strings, POST requests, streaming large uploads, streaming large downloads, using HTTP cookies, uploading JSON data, etc...
  • Can send both synchronous and asynchronous requests using the same interface.
  • Uses PSR-7 interfaces for requests, responses, and streams. This allows you to utilize other PSR-7 compatible libraries with Guzzle.
  • Abstracts away the underlying HTTP transport, allowing you to write environment and transport agnostic code; i.e., no hard dependency on cURL, PHP streams, sockets, or non-blocking event loops.
  • Middleware system allows you to augment and compose client behavior.
$client = new \Hough\Guzzle\Client();
$res = $client->request('GET', '');
echo $res->getStatusCode();
// 200
echo $res->getHeaderLine('content-type');
// 'application/json; charset=utf8'
echo $res->getBody();
// '{"id": 1420053, "name": "guzzle", ...}'

// Send an asynchronous request.
$request = new \Hough\Psr7\Request('GET', '');
$promise = $client->sendAsync($request)->then(function ($response) {
    echo 'I completed! ' . $response->getBody();
