Event-driven, streaming HTTP client for ReactPHP

Basic usage

Requests are prepared using the Client#request() method.

The Request#write(string $data) method can be used to write data to the request body. Data will be buffered until the underlying connection is established, at which point buffered data will be sent and all further data will be passed to the underlying connection immediately.

The Request#end(?string $data = null) method can be used to finish sending the request. You may optionally pass a last request body data chunk that will be sent just like a write() call. Calling this method finalizes the outgoing request body (which may be empty). Data will be buffered until the underlying connection is established, at which point buffered data will be sent and all further data will be ignored.

The Request#close() method can be used to forefully close sending the request. Unlike the end() method, this method discards any buffers and closes the underlying connection if it is already established or cancels the pending connection attempt otherwise.

Request implements WritableStreamInterface, so a Stream can be piped to it. Interesting events emitted by Request:

Response implements ReadableStreamInterface. Interesting events emitted by Response:

Example

<?php

$loop = React\EventLoop\Factory::create();
$client = new React\HttpClient\Client($loop);

$request = $client->request('GET', 'https://github.com/');
$request->on('response', function ($response) {
    $response->on('data', function ($data, $response) {
        // ...
    });
});
$request->end();
$loop->run();
