HTTP Client That Handles Retries and Logging

HTTP Client That Handles Retries and Logging

Gustavo Ocanto created an HTTP client on top of Guzzle that handles retries and logging. Typically you’d have some code like the following (and likely a try/catch too) if you need to retry an HTTP call:

use GuzzleHttp\Client;

$retry = 1;
$response = null;

do {
    $response = (new Client)->get('');
} while ($response === null && $retry <= 5);

With this client, you can achieve similar with the following code:

$response = (new Client)->retry(5)->get(''); 

If you need more granular control and want to tap into the retry routine, the package has an onRetry method:

$response = (new Client)->onRetry(function () {
    // Do stuff

You can learn more about this package, get full installation instructions, and view the source code on GitHub at gocanto/http-client.
