Guzzle 6 Adapter (deprecated)

An HTTPlug adapter for the Guzzle 6 HTTP client.

Guzzle 5 is not maintained anymore. We recommend to upgrade to Guzzle version 7.


To install the Guzzle adapter, which will also install Guzzle itself (if it was not yet included in your project), run:

$ composer require php-http/guzzle6-adapter


To create a Guzzle6 adapter you should use the createWithConfig() function. It will let you to pass Guzzle configuration to the client:

use Http\Adapter\Guzzle6\Client as GuzzleAdapter;

$config = [
    'timeout' => 2,
    'handler' => //...
    // ...
$adapter = GuzzleAdapter::createWithConfig($config);


If you want even more control over your Guzzle object, you may give a Guzzle client as first argument to the adapter’s constructor:

use GuzzleHttp\Client as GuzzleClient;
use Http\Adapter\Guzzle6\Client as GuzzleAdapter;

$config = ['timeout' => 5];
// ...
$guzzle = new GuzzleClient($config);
// ...
$adapter = new GuzzleAdapter($guzzle);

If you pass a Guzzle instance to the adapter, make sure to configure Guzzle to not throw exceptions on HTTP error status codes, or this adapter will violate PSR-18.

And use it to send synchronous requests:

use GuzzleHttp\Psr7\Request;

$request = new Request('GET', '');

// Returns a Psr\Http\Message\ResponseInterface
$response = $adapter->sendRequest($request);

Or send asynchronous ones:

use GuzzleHttp\Psr7\Request;

$request = new Request('GET', '');

// Returns a Http\Promise\Promise
$promise = $adapter->sendAsyncRequest(request);
