Guzzle vs Tastypie: What are the differences?
What is Guzzle? PHP HTTP client that makes it easy to send HTTP requests and trivial to integrate with web services. Guzzle is a PHP HTTP client that makes it easy to send HTTP requests and trivial to integrate with web services.
What is Tastypie? Creating delicious APIs for Django apps since 2010. Tastypie is a webservice API framework for Django. It provides a convenient, yet powerful and highly customizable abstraction for creating REST-style interfaces.
Guzzle and Tastypie can be primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.
Some of the features offered by Guzzle are:
- Manages things like persistent connections, represents query strings as collections, simplifies sending streaming POST requests with fields and files, and abstracts away the underlying HTTP transport layer.
- Can send both synchronous and asynchronous requests using the same interface without requiring a dependency on a specific event loop.
- Pluggable HTTP handlers allows Guzzle to integrate with any method you choose for sending HTTP requests over the wire (e.g., cURL, sockets, PHP’s stream wrapper, non-blocking event loops like React, etc.).
On the other hand, Tastypie provides the following key features:
- Full GET/POST/PUT/DELETE/PATCH support
- Reasonable defaults
- Designed to be extended at every turn
Guzzle and Tastypie are both open source tools. It seems that Guzzle with 17.1K GitHub stars and 1.95K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Tastypie with 3.54K GitHub stars and 1.12K GitHub forks.
