ixudra/curl

Custom PHP cURL library for the Laravel 4 or 5 framework - developed by Ixudra.

This package can be used by anyone at any given time, but keep in mind that it is optimized for my personal custom workflow. It may not suit your project perfectly and modifications may be in order.

Installation

Pull this package in through Composer.


    {
        "require": {
            "ixudra/curl": "6.*"
        }
    }

Laravel 5.* Integration

Add the service provider to your config/app.php file:


    'providers'     => array(

        //...
        Ixudra\Curl\CurlServiceProvider::class,

    ),

Add the facade to your config/app.php file:


    'facades'       => array(

        //...
        'Curl'          => Ixudra\Curl\Facades\Curl::class,

    ),

Laravel 4.* Integration

Add the service provider to your app/config/app.php file:


    'providers'     => array(

        //...
        'Ixudra\Curl\CurlServiceProvider',

    ),

Add the facade to your app/config/app.php file:


    'facades'       => array(

        //...
        'Curl'          => 'Ixudra\Curl\Facades\Curl',

    ),

Lumen 5.* integration

In your bootstrap/app.php, make sure you've un-commented the following line (around line 26):

$app->withFacades();

Then, register your class alias:

class_alias('Ixudra\Curl\Facades\Curl, 'Curl');

Finally, you have to register your ServiceProvider around line 70-80:

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Register Service Providers
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here we will register all of the application's service providers which
| are used to bind services into the container. Service providers are
| totally optional, so you are not required to uncomment this line.
|
*/

// $app->register('App\Providers\AppServiceProvider');

// Package service providers
$app->register('Ixudra\Curl\Providers\CurlServiceProvider');

Integration without Laravel

Create a new instance of the CurlService where you would like to use the package:


    $curlService = new \Ixudra\Curl\CurlService();

Usage

Laravel usage

The package provides an easy interface for sending cURL requests from your application. The package provides a fluent interface similar the Laravel query builder to easily configure the request. There are several utility methods that allow you to easily add certain options to the request. If no utility method applies, you can also use the general withOption method.

Sending GET requests

In order to send a GET request, you need to use the get() method that is provided by the package:


    // Send a GET request to: http://www.foo.com/bar
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->get();

    // Send a GET request to: http://www.foo.com/bar?foz=baz
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->withData( array( 'foz' => 'baz' ) )
        ->get();

    // Send a GET request to: http://www.foo.com/bar?foz=baz using JSON
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->withData( array( 'foz' => 'baz' ) )
        ->asJson()
        ->get();

Sending POST requests

Post requests work similar to GET requests, but use the post() method instead:


    // Send a POST request to: http://www.foo.com/bar
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->post();

    // Send a POST request to: http://www.foo.com/bar
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->withData( array( 'foz' => 'baz' ) )
        ->post();

    // Send a POST request to: http://www.foo.com/bar with arguments 'foz' = 'baz' using JSON
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->withData( array( 'foz' => 'baz' ) )
        ->asJson()
        ->post();

    // Send a POST request to: http://www.foo.com/bar with arguments 'foz' = 'baz' using JSON and return as associative array
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->withData( array( 'foz' => 'baz' ) )
        ->asJson( true )
        ->post();

Sending PUT requests

Put requests work similar to POST requests, but use the put() method instead:


    // Send a PUT request to: http://www.foo.com/bar/1 with arguments 'foz' = 'baz' using JSON
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar/1')
        ->withData( array( 'foz' => 'baz' ) )
        ->asJson()
        ->put();

Sending PATCH requests

Patch requests work similar to POST requests, but use the patch() method instead:


    // Send a PATCH request to: http://www.foo.com/bar/1 with arguments 'foz' = 'baz' using JSON
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar/1')
        ->withData( array( 'foz' => 'baz' ) )
        ->asJson()
        ->patch();

Sending DELETE requests

Delete requests work similar to GET requests, but use the delete() method instead:


    // Send a DELETE request to: http://www.foo.com/bar/1 using JSON
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar/1')
        ->asJson()
        ->delete();

Sending files via Curl

For sending files via a POST request, you can use the containsFile method to correctly format a request before sending:


    $response = Curl::to('http://foo.com/bar.png')
        ->withContentType('multipart/form-data')
        ->withData( array( 'foz' => 'baz' ) )
        ->containsFile()
        ->post();

Downloading files

For downloading a file, you can use the download() method:


    // Download an image from: file http://www.foo.com/bar.png
    $response = Curl::to('http://foo.com/bar.png')
        ->withContentType('image/png')
        ->download('/path/to/dir/image.png');

Debugging requests

In case a request fails, it might be useful to get debug the request. In this case, you can use the debug() method. This method uses one parameter, which is the name of the file in which the debug information is to be stored:


    // Send a GET request to http://www.foo.com/bar and log debug information in /path/to/dir/logFile.txt
    $response = Curl::to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
            ->enableDebug('/path/to/dir/logFile.txt');
            ->get();

Using cURL options

You can add various cURL options to the request using of several utility methods such as withHeader() for adding a header to the request, or use the general withOption() method if no utility method applies. The package will automatically prepend the options with the CURLOPT_ prefix. It is worth noting that the package does not perform any validation on the cURL options. Additional information about available cURL options can be found here.

Usage without Laravel

Usage without Laravel is identical to usage described previously. The only difference is that you will not be able to use the facades to access the CurlService.


    $curlService = new \Ixudra\Curl\CurlService();

    // Send a GET request to: http://www.foo.com/bar
    $response = $curlService->to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->get();

    // Send a POST request to: http://www.foo.com/bar
    $response = $curlService->to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->post();

    // Send a PUT request to: http://www.foo.com/bar
    $response = $curlService->to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->put();

    // Send a DELETE request to: http://www.foo.com/bar
    $response = $curlService->to('http://www.foo.com/bar')
        ->delete();

Planning

  • Add additional utility methods for other cURL options
  • Add contract to allow different HTTP providers such as Guzzle
