Transporter is a futuristic way to send API requests in PHP. This is an OOP approach to handle API requests.

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require juststeveking/laravel-transporter

You can publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="JustSteveKing\Transporter\TransporterServiceProvider" --tag="transporter-config"

The contents of the published config file:

return [
    'base_uri' => env('TRANSPORTER_BASE_URI'),
];

Generating Request

To generate an API request to use with Transporter, you can use the Artisan make command:

php artisan make:api-request NameOfYourRequest

This will by default publish as: app/Transporter/Requests/NameOfYourRequest.php

Usage

Transporter Requests are an extention of Laravels PendingRequest so all of the methods available on a Pending Request is available to you on your requests.

Also when you send the request, you will receive a Illuminate\Http\Client\Response back, allowing you to do things such as collect($key) and json() and failed() very easily. We are simply just shifting how we send it into a class based approach.

TestRequest::build()
    ->withToken('foobar')
    ->withData([
        'title' => 'Build a package'
    ])
    ->send()
    ->json();

When building your request to send, you can override the following:

  • Request Data using withData(array $data)
  • Request Query Params using withQuery(array $query)
  • Request Path using setPath(string $path)

Checking the payload

I had a request in an issue to be able to see the request data for a request, so I have added a helper method called payload which will return whatever has been stored in the request data property.

$request = TestRequest::build()
    ->withToken('foobar')
    ->withData([
        'title' => 'Build a package'
    ]);

$data = $request->payload(); // ['title' => 'Build a package']

Concurrent Requests

$responses = \JustSteveKing\Transporter\Facades\Concurrently::build()->setRequests([
    TestRequest::build()
        ->withToken('foobar')
        ->withData([
        'title' => 'Build a package'
    ]),
    TestRequest::build()
        ->withToken('foobar')
        ->withData([
        'title' => 'Build a package'
    ]),
    TestRequest::build()
        ->withToken('foobar')
        ->withData([
        'title' => 'Build a package'
    ]),
]);

$responses[0]->json();
$responses[1]->json();
$responses[2]->json();

Concurrency with a Custom key

$responses = \JustSteveKing\Transporter\Facades\Concurrently::build()->setRequests([
    TestRequest::build()
        ->as(
            key: 'first'
        )
        ->withToken('foobar')
        ->withData([
        'title' => 'Build a package'
    ]),
    TestRequest::build()
        ->as(
            key: 'second'
        )
        ->withToken('foobar')
        ->withData([
        'title' => 'Build a package'
    ]),
    TestRequest::build()
        ->as(
            key: 'third'
        )
        ->withToken('foobar')
        ->withData([
        'title' => 'Build a package'
    ]),
]);

$responses['first']->json();
$responses['second']->json();
$responses['third']->json();

Optional Alias

Instead of the standard send() method, it is also possible to use the fun alias energize(). Please note, no sound effects are included.

TestRequest::build()
    ->withToken('foobar')
    ->withData([
        'title' => 'Build a package'
    ])
    ->energize()
    ->json();

Faking a Request or Concurrent

To fake a request, all you need to do is replace the build method with the fake method, which takes an optional status parameter, to set the status code being returned with the response:

TestRequest::fake(
    status: 200,
)->withToken('foobar')
->withData([
    'title' => 'Build a package'
])->withFakeData([
    'data' => 'faked'
])->send();
$responses = Concurrently::fake()->setRequests([
    TestRequest::fake()->setPath(
        path: '/todos/1',
    )->as(
        key: 'first'
    ),
    TestRequest::fake()->setPath(
        path: '/todos/2',
    )->as(
        key: 'second'
    ),
    TestRequest::fake()->setPath(
        path: '/todos/3',
    )->as(
        key: 'thirds'
    ),
])->run();

Which will return a response with the data you pass through to withFakeData, which internally will merge what is on the class with what you pass it. So you can build up an initial state of faked data per class.

Sending XML

Thanks to a fantastic suggestion by @jessarcher we can use a Trait to allow for easy use of XML in your requests. Using this as a trait makes a lot of sense as most APIs these days use JSON, so it is purely opt in. To use this, simply use the trait on your request:

<?php

declare(strict_types=1);

namespace App\Transporter\Requests;

use JustSteveKing\Transporter\Concerns\SendsXml;
use JustSteveKing\Transporter\Request;

class XmlRequest extends Request
{
    use SendsXml;
    
    protected string $method = 'POST';
    
    protected string $path = '/your-endpoint';
}

Then all you need to do is call the methods:

XmlRequest::build()->withXml(
    xml: '<todo><name>Send an XML Requets</name><completed>false</completed></todo>'
)->send();
