Guzzle vs Rails API: What are the differences?
Developers describe Guzzle as "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. On the other hand, Rails API is detailed as "Rails for API only applications". Rails::API is a subset of a normal Rails application, created for applications that don't require all functionality that a complete Rails application provides. It is a bit more lightweight, and consequently a bit faster than a normal Rails application. The main example for its usage is in API applications only, where you usually don't need the entire Rails middleware stack nor template generation.
Guzzle and Rails API can be categorized as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.
Guzzle and Rails API are both open source tools. It seems that Guzzle with 16.9K GitHub stars and 1.94K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Rails API with 5.27K GitHub stars and 293 GitHub forks.
