This package provides Laravel bindings to make PSR HTTP requests using the Symfony HTTP Client for the PSR-18 client and Nyholm's PSR-7 package for the PSR-17 factories.


composer require wimski/laravel-psr-http

Optionally publish the config file to adjust the default options for the Symfony HTTP Client.

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=symfony-http-client

Usage example



namespace App\Console\Commands;

use Illuminate\Console\Command;
use Psr\Http\Client\ClientExceptionInterface;
use Psr\Http\Client\ClientInterface;
use Psr\Http\Message\RequestFactoryInterface;
use Psr\Http\Message\StreamFactoryInterface;

class TestCommand extends Command
    protected $signature = 'http:test';

    protected $description = 'Test the HTTP client';

    protected ClientInterface $httpClient;
    protected RequestFactoryInterface $requestFactory;
    protected StreamFactoryInterface $streamFactory;

    public function __construct(
        ClientInterface $httpClient,
        RequestFactoryInterface $requestFactory,
        StreamFactoryInterface $streamFactory
    ) {
        $this->httpClient     = $httpClient;
        $this->requestFactory = $requestFactory;
        $this->streamFactory  = $streamFactory;


    public function handle(): void
        $stream = $this->streamFactory->createStream(json_encode([
            'title'  => 'foo',
            'body'   => 'bar',
            'userId' => 1,

        $request = $this->requestFactory->createRequest('POST', 'https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts')
            ->withHeader('Content-type', 'application/json; charset=UTF-8')

        try {
            $response = $this->httpClient->sendRequest($request);
            dump(json_decode((string) $response->getBody(), true));
        } catch (ClientExceptionInterface $exception) {
