xttp provides an easy-to-use fluent interface for working with Guzzle in PHP. Requests can have append data, cookies, headers, middleware, mocks, options, and more. It is very flexible and allows for passing in different parameters. This way, you can create overrides for when you are mocking and/or doing unit tests.

Regular use is simple and done like the following:

use JohnathanSmith\Xttp\Xttp;

/** @var \JohnathanSmith\Xttp\XttpResponseWrapper $xttpResponse */

$xttpResponse = Xttp::post(
    ['form_params' => ['foo' => 'bar'], 
    'headers' => ['Content-Type' => 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded']

// You may also do get, put, patch, delete.

The XttpPending class has several fluent methods on it that allow you to set: method, url, headers, content, body, mocks, clients, and more. You just need to add finish it with the process method.

use JohnathanSmith\Xttp\XttpPending;

$response = XttpPending::new()
->setUrl(// url)
->setMethod(// method)
->withHeaders(['X-Foo' => 'Bar'])

It will return a XttpResponse class that allows you to retrieve data like: headers, original responses, transfer statistics, JSON (with error checking), body strings, and other items. This is done painlessly.

use JohnathanSmith\Xttp\XttpResponseWrapper;

/** @var \JohnathanSmith\Xttp\XttpResponseWrapper $xttpResponse */
$url = $xttpResponse->getUrl();
$json = $xttpResponse->json();
$bodyString = $xttpResponse->body();
$successBoolean = $xttpResponse->isSuccess();
$headersArray = $xttpResponse->headers();
$singleHeaderValue = $xttpResponse->header('X-Foo');
$statusCode200 = $xttpResponse->status();
$originalResponse = $xttpResponse->response();

The Laravel package uses the service container to inject automatically into a Facade using the LaravelXttp class. This is macroable as well, so you can add your own macros.
