Top 23 Ruby HTTP Projects

  • GitHub repo httparty

    :tada: Makes http fun again!

    Project mention: Best language to learn quickly/easily to interact with an API? | | 2021-10-01

    Everyone here seems to have misread what you wanted. From my interpretation, you are trying to upload a csv somewhere, using an api. With ruby, you can either do it with a built in library or one of the nice http gems. Someone suggested using Python with a builtin library called requests which isn't actually built in, so I'm also going to go with a library that isn't built in. httparty

  • GitHub repo Faraday

    Simple, but flexible HTTP client library, with support for multiple backends.

    Project mention: NTLM authentication with Ruby and Faraday | | 2021-11-14

    Net::HTTP is good. Even so, how to authenticate with popular gem, for instance Faraday? I started to figure out how to implement the protocol with Faraday 🤔

  • Nanos

    Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.

  • GitHub repo RESTClient

    Simple HTTP and REST client for Ruby, inspired by microframework syntax for specifying actions.

    Project mention: Crest 1.0.0 Release | | 2021-10-14

    For practical reasons, I decided to re-implement Ruby's rest-client gem to dive into the Crystal.

  • GitHub repo Typhoeus

    Typhoeus wraps libcurl in order to make fast and reliable requests.

    Project mention: The Best Ruby HTTP clients for 2021 | | 2021-04-28

    Have you had a play with typhoeus by any chance? It's a wrapper over libcurl, so you get OS threads for free - which is kind of nice.

  • GitHub repo HTTP

    HTTP (The Gem! a.k.a. http.rb) - a fast Ruby HTTP client with a chainable API, streaming support, and timeouts

    Project mention: 7 Ruby Standard libraries you should get to grips with | | 2021-10-22

    In the past I have opted to use the HTTP.rb gem, but for simple tasks it’s really useful to learn Net/http or even open-uri for simple GET requests.

  • GitHub repo flipper

    :dolphin: Beautiful, performant feature flags for Ruby. (by jnunemaker)

    Project mention: Keeping the Stakes Low while Breaking Production | | 2021-11-29

    The next step came about when I learned more about our use of Flipper; a Ruby gem for dynamically toggling on and off features. I didn’t know when the feature would roll out, but I wanted control over the feature. I also wanted admins of other Forems to have control as well. This was trivial with Flipper. Once I deployed the code, Forem’s got the original behavior unless they turned “flipped” on the feature.

  • GitHub repo Savon

    Heavy metal SOAP client

  • Scout APM

    Scout APM: A developer's best friend. Try free for 14-days. Scout APM uses tracing logic that ties bottlenecks to source code so you know the exact line of code causing performance issues and can get back to building a great product faster.

  • GitHub repo excon

    Usable, fast, simple HTTP 1.1 for Ruby

  • GitHub repo Http-2

    Pure Ruby implementation of HTTP/2 protocol

  • GitHub repo down

    Streaming downloads using net/http, http.rb or wget (by janko)

    Project mention: How to download a large JSONL file? | | 2021-05-10

    If I'm wrong and it's actually open-uri consuming memory, you could have a look at how the Down library implements ChunkedIO in response to Down::open.

  • GitHub repo HttpLog

    Log outgoing HTTP requests in ruby

  • GitHub repo Http Client

    'httpclient' gives something like the functionality of libwww-perl (LWP) in Ruby.

    Project mention: Turbocharge HTTP requests in Ruby | | 2021-05-15

    I think an implementation similar to this is built-in transparently to the oft-ignored ruby httpclient

  • GitHub repo Spyke

    Interact with REST services in an ActiveRecord-like manner

  • GitHub repo Exception Handler

    Ruby on Rails Custom Error Pages

  • GitHub repo Unirest

    Unirest in Ruby: Simplified, lightweight HTTP client library.

  • GitHub repo api

    Minimal, lightweight, fastest Ruby framework for HTTP APIs. (by hanami)

    Project mention: ROM and Sequel over ActiveRecord? | | 2021-11-19

    I'm curious if anyone done a benchmark of ROM+Sequel against ActiveRecord? I know Sequel is decently fast, and I know there's benchmarks for hanami-api, but how much overhead does ROM add?

  • GitHub repo Sawyer

    Secret User Agent of HTTP

  • GitHub repo Flexirest

    Flexirest - The really flexible REST API client for Ruby

  • GitHub repo forward-proxy

    Minimal forward proxy using 150LOC and only standard libraries.

    Project mention: 150 LOC forward proxy implementation with lots of comments | | 2021-01-24
  • GitHub repo tipi

    Tipi - the All-in-one Web Server for Ruby Apps

    Project mention: Explaining Ruby Fibers | | 2021-10-21

    can wait for to be ready :)

  • GitHub repo homebrew-extensions

    :beers: Homebrew tap for PHP extensions

    Project mention: Does anybody use MacBook Air M1 to develop PHP | | 2021-06-14

    But if you want very new PHP (8.1) there is +

  • GitHub repo graphql-benchmarks

    GraphQL benchmarks using the-benchmarker framework.

    Project mention: How to build a solid Go Graphql application quickly. | | 2021-02-04

    I have not tried gqlgen yet. Just by comparing benchmarks at it looks like GGql is faster by comparing to graphql-go. I'd love to see gqlgen get added to those benchmarks or GGql added to the gqlgen comparisons.

  • GitHub repo Accept Language

    Ruby parser for Accept-Language request HTTP header 🌐

    Project mention: Language negotiation with Ruby | | 2021-07-03

    In Ruby, there is a small library that can facilitate language negotiations between client and server: accept_language.
