    Guzzle is a PHP HTTP client library. It’s a simple and effective solution for sending HTTP requests and managing HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2.0 responses. This versatile tool excels in several areas, allowing developers to build query strings quickly, send POST requests, upload JSON data, and handle other HTTP-related tasks.

  • http

    Event-driven, streaming HTTP client and server implementation for ReactPHP. (by reactphp)

    Is there a particular reason you haven't picked an already existing library? There are many that exist and in many different programming languages. I personally use ReactPHP's HTTP library because the applications I build are usually things like Discord bots, and the DiscordPHP API library is built on top of ReactPHP. Choosing a well-known library makes it easier to find other applications that already support it.
