HTTP Client - Static Usage

zend-http provides another client implementation, Zend\Http\ClientStatic, a static HTTP client which exposes a simplified API for quickly performing one-off GET and POST operations.

Quick Start

use Zend\Http\ClientStatic;

// Simple GET request
$response = ClientStatic::get('http://example.org');

// More complex GET request, specifying query string 'foo=bar' and adding a
// custom header to request JSON data be returned (Accept: application/json):
$response = ClientStatic::get(
    'http://example.org',
    ['foo' => 'bar'],
    ['Accept' => 'application/json']
);

// We can also do a POST request using the same format. Here we POST
// login credentials (username/password) to a login page:
$response = ClientStatic::post(
    'https://example.org/login.php',
    [
        'username' => 'foo',
        'password' => 'bar',
    ]
);
