๐Ÿ”ฅ Download the Response of an HTTP Request in Laravel image

Marcel Pociot shared a tip on using the Laravel HTTP client method sink() to write a response to a file:

The sink request option is also available in the Guzzle HTTP client library, formerly the save_to request option:

$client->request('GET', '/stream/20', ['sink' => '/path/to/file']);
 
// PHP stream
$resource = \GuzzleHttp\Psr7\Utils::tryFopen('/path/to/file', 'w');
$stream = \GuzzleHttp\Psr7\Utils::streamFor($resource);
$client->request('GET', '/stream/20', ['sink' => $stream]);

If you'd like to learn more about all the excellent features Laravel's HTTP request class provides, check out the HTTP Requests documentation. The PendingRequest source is another excellent resource to see how Laravel's HTTP client works under the hood.
