phpWebHacks is an advanced HTTP client written in PHP, a utility for HTTP scripting. It simulates a real Web browser, but you use it with lines of code rather than a mouse and keyboard. It uses pure PHP; no Curl or other fancy dependencies are needed. You can build scripts in minutes: a GMail/Yahoo/MSN contacts grabber, a YouTube video downloader, an HTTP mailer, and many more.
ExtConvLinks is a PHP class that can be used to convert URLs in text to links using Bit.ly. It can parse a text to find HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and FTPS links. The class sends requests to the Bit.ly Web services API to convert the URLs that it finds into HTML links using the Bit.ly URLs.
GridPort is a simple and robust open standard for portlets based on HTTP. It aims to be a simple, scalable distributed composition independent of implementation technology. Transparent collaboration and an SOA paradigm from both interface and data perspectives are encouraged. Component types include portal, proxy for asynchronous multi-casting, and portlets. The purpose of this project is to develop mainly the specification alongside a prototype to enable development of these components in any programming environment and operating platform, which is why its central protocol is HTTP 1.1.
Guzzle is a RESTful Web service client framework that enables PHP developers to quickly build testable Web service clients utilizing HTTP/1.1 best practices. It gives you access to advanced features like persistent HTTP connections, parallel requests, exponential backoff, over the wire logging, MD5 validation, cookie jars, and a caching forward proxy.
