This project is no longer maintained and has not been updated to work with Guzzle 5. If someone wishes to use Guzzle via a provider with Silex, then I suggest creating a new repo called something like guzzle-silex-provider, and I'll link to it from here.

Guzzle Silex Service Provider

The GuzzleServiceProvider provides a Guzzle ServiceBuilder and default Client object through Michael Dowling’s Guzzle framework. Guzzle is a PHP HTTP client and framework for building RESTful web service clients.

You will need to install a copy of Guzzle in order to use this service provider.


  • (optional) array|string|SimpleXMLElement Data describing your web service clients. You can pass the path to a file (.js|.json|.php), an array of data, or an instantiated SimpleXMLElement containing configuration data. See the Guzzle docs for more info.
  • guzzle.base_url: (optional) The base url for the default web service client. When left out, the actual calls made must use absolute URLs.
  • guzzle.plugins: (optional) An array of guzzle plugins to register with the client.


  • guzzle: An instantiated Guzzle ServiceBuilder.
  • guzzle.client: A default Guzzle web service client using the base URL.


require __DIR__ . '/../silex.phar';
require __DIR__ . '/../vendor/Guzzle/GuzzleServiceProvider.php';

use Silex\Application;
use Guzzle\GuzzleServiceProvider;

$app = new Application();

$app->register(new GuzzleServiceProvider(), array(
    '' => '/path/to/services.json',

Example Usage

Using the instantiated ServiceBuilder:

// Get a command "foo" from "my_client"
$result = $app['guzzle']['my_client']->getCommand('foo');
$result = $foo->execute();

Using the Guzzle client:

$response = $app['guzzle.client']->head('')->send();
