The Zttp Guzzle wrapper package by Adam Wathan will be coming to Laravel 7 as a new Http package. According to the pull request to add this feature, it provides a much nicer syntax for the 90% use case of Guzzle where you just need to POST some JSON to an endpoint.

Here is some of the basic usage of the new Http package:

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Http;

$response = Http::post('url', [
    'name' => 'Taylor',
]);

echo $response['foo'];

$response->body()
$response->json()
$response->status()
$response->ok()
$response->successful() (>= 200 && < 300)
$response->serverError()
$response->clientError()

It’s also worth noting that in the PR Taylor says, this is not an entirely new client – it is only a UX / DX convenience layer on top of Guzzle. They will not be adding a lot of complicated features, and if you need something more, just use Guzzle directly.

For more details on this new HTTP package check out the pull request, and I’m certain Taylor will give more information on it during his Laravel 7 talk at Laracon Online.
