Today, I'm happy to announce the
v2.5.0 release of clue/reactphp-buzz 🎉
Simple, async PSR-7 HTTP client for concurrently processing any number of HTTP requests, built on top of ReactPHP.
As the version number suggests, this is not exactly a new project. In fact, this has been used in production in a larger number of projects for a few years already. So I guess it's about time to write an introductory blog post about this project, why async HTTP requests are such a powerful feature and also a bit about the motivation for this project and why I think @ReactPHP is a perfect fit for sending HTTP requests.
HTTP all the things!
