Top 23 Elixir HTTP Projects

  • httpoison

    Yet Another HTTP client for Elixir powered by hackney

    Project mention: Phoenix SaaS starter kit? | reddit.com/r/elixir | 2022-08-01

    You can also use https://github.com/edgurgel/httpoison to write your own API integrations. If there's already a package out there, may as well use it. If not, Elixir makes it easy enough to knock out in an hour or two (unless the API itself is a pain to work with, but that would apply to any language).

  • tesla

    The flexible HTTP client library for Elixir, with support for middleware and multiple adapters.

  • mint

    Functional HTTP client for Elixir with support for HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 🌱 (by elixir-mint)

    Project mention: ElixirのHTTPクライアントでお天気情報を取得したい(2022年) | dev.to | 2022-06-08
  • finch

    Elixir HTTP client, focused on performance (by sneako)

    Project mention: Taming the Time: how to install & develop with XTDB | dev.to | 2023-04-05

    However, not every Elixir’s HTTP client supports sending requests using HTTP2 - so we have to search for another option rather than using HTTPoison that we widely use in other projects. We’ve decided to go with Finch, as apart from supporting HTTP2 it also focuses on performance and provides telemetry support out of the box - which we’ve found very useful for tracing and debugging purposes.

  • bandit

    Bandit is a pure Elixir HTTP server for Plug & WebSock applications (by mtrudel)

    Project mention: Anyone using bandit in prod? | reddit.com/r/elixir | 2023-02-02

    [1] https://github.com/mtrudel/bandit/blob/main/lib/bandit/websocket/permessage_deflate.ex

  • bypass

    Bypass provides a quick way to create a custom plug that can be put in place instead of an actual HTTP server to return prebaked responses to client requests.

    Project mention: How to ignore a child of a Supervisor not being able to start during tests? | reddit.com/r/elixir | 2022-06-11

    In order to do this you may use mock (which is simple to use), mox (they have pretty compelling arguments why not to mock traditionally), or specifically for http requests, bypass.

  • Crawler

    A high performance web crawler / scraper in Elixir. (by fredwu)

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • httpotion

    [Deprecated because ibrowse is not maintained] HTTP client for Elixir (use Tesla please)

  • Crawly

    Crawly, a high-level web crawling & scraping framework for Elixir.

    Project mention: Squirm - This was the night of the crawling terror! | reddit.com/r/crystal_programming | 2023-05-06

    I would say that the usage of Squirm is for crawling purposes and it is a close analogue of https://github.com/elixir-crawly/crawly

  • oauth2

    An Elixir OAuth 2.0 Client Library (by ueberauth)

    Project mention: An Elixir OAuth 2.0 Client Library | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-03-14
  • tentacat

    Simple Elixir wrapper for the GitHub API

    Project mention: An Introduction to Mocking Tools for Elixir | dev.to | 2023-04-18

    In my opinion, Mock works well for certain types of tests. I usually find myself reaching for it when we need to mock external libraries that we have no control over. For example, let’s say we use an external library to fetch a user’s GitHub profile instead of our custom GithubAPI. Something like this:

  • PlugAttack

    A plug building toolkit for blocking and throttling abusive requests

    Project mention: Exponential Backoff with Elixir | dev.to | 2023-04-11

    Hope this will help you in your next project if an exponential backoff is needed, maybe when you are dependent on some service that rate limits requests with PlugAttack as described in this blog post.
