Laravel now provides an expressive, minimal API around the Guzzle HTTP client, allowing you to quickly make outgoing HTTP requests to communicate with other web applications & web services.

Laravel’s wrapper around Guzzle is focused on its most common use cases and a wonderful developer experience. For example, the client makes it a breeze to POST and interface with JSON data:

Post Request

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Http;

$response = Http::withHeaders([
    'Authentication' => 'Bearer $token'
])->post('', [
    'name' => 'janedoe',

return $response['id'];

Get Request

$response = Http::get($url);
$response = Http::get($url,['name'=>'janedoe']);


Now with new HTTP Client, its even easier in getting responses instead of json_decode and then retrieving the body as we used to in GuzzleHTTP.
